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!

Perth Police Give Generous Donation!

We have received our first large donation for the building of our new playground at St. John's!

A big THANK YOU to the generous Perth Police Association for donating $1,500 to the Playground Fund. Our students, staff and families thank you from the bottom of our hearts!

Each year, the Perth Police Association holds a golf tournament to raise funds for Perth area community events, such as free Saturday public swims at the Perth and District Swimming Pool and free Sunday public skates at the Perth and District Arena. The Association's donation to the St. John's Playground Build is another example of how our hard-working, dedicated community police force is committed to providing access to recreational play and sport for children in our area. Thank you and God bless you!
