Let Them Be Kids

Let Them Be Kids is an all volunteer, non-profit organization created to build community capacity on the grassroots level, while building playgrounds, skate parks and fitness parks across Canada. These projects leave a legacy of community members who are inspired and better equipped to lay a strong foundation for a brighter tomorrow.

St. John Catholic Elementary School in Perth is a proud recipient of a 2010 Let Them Be Kids "Believe" Award! Every dollar raised by our community will be matched by Let Them Be Kids
to build a much needed playground at St. John's!

St. John's Students Design Their New Playground!

Students at St. John's are currently deciding what they want to have on their new school yard!

Classes from kindergarten to grade six have been voting in the Let Them Be Kids Dot-mocracy program. This exercise encourages each child to be involved in designing the actual play equipment that will be installed on BUILD DAY (May 29, 2010)! The children VOTE for playground items they would love at a playground. Voting will be finalized on Tuesday, Jan. 5!

St. John's new playground equipment will be designed and installed by Belair, a company located in Paris, Ontario. Belair will take our students' votes and will put together the designs based on what our students want! We are very excited to see the results...... stay tuned!
