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!

Fundraising Dance a Huge Success!

St. John's Elementary hosted a dance on Saturday night to raise funds for our new playground. The turn-out was great and a fun time was had by all! The band, Tailgate, which includes former St. John's students, Cheryl (Adrain) Dermann and Brian (Doc) Timmins, was unbelieveable! The dance floor was packed and the music was rockin'! Tailgate helped make a great party even better! 

The Silent Auction was a success with almost 100 items donated and lots of competition among the many bidders! By the time the night was over, more than $8,000 had been raised to help build the students of St. John's a brand new school yard! Thanks to all those who attended for showing your support and community spirit!
