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!

Local Perth Businesses & Families Continue to Support St. John's!

This was an exciting week for the students at St. John's Catholic Elementary School! Large donations have been received recently by generous families and businesses in the Perth community, which will help build our playground on May 29th of this year! 

After about six weeks of fundraising, we are thrilled to announce that we are about halfway towards our overall fundraising goal! 

The Perth Community has been amazing in supporting St. John's students!

We pray for continued success as we countdown to May 29 Build Day - only 86 days to go! Our students at St. John's say, from the bottom of our hearts, THANK YOU to the follow donors:
