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 Creates Playground Committee

For a long time now, St. John's students and teachers (especially kindergarten teacher, Mrs. O'Neil!) have wished for improvements to the school yard. The small kindergarten yard is practically bare and all water and dirt drains into that section of the yard, and the space for junior and intermediate students lacks quality playground and sports equipment.

Tonight, a sub-committee of the School Council (Parent Council) was created to bring together the community to give the current school yard a face-lift! A small group of moms volunteered to help, and the first priorities are to create a plan and submit applications for funding. Wish us luck!
