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 Community Helps St. John's Achieve Fundraising Goal!

St. John's Catholic Elementary School is thrilled to announce that it has met its fundraising goal of $51,000 to build its new playground for our students on Build Day - this coming Saturday, May 29th!

A heartfelt THANK YOU to all St. John'sschool families, St. John's parish members, local service clubs, businesses, community associations and individuals, who made generous donations to help meet the goal of providing the students with an amazing outdoor play yard.

We began our fundraising campaign in January, 2010, with high hopes and big dreams for our children! Within 90 days, the Perth community generously responded, and together, we have met our goal of raising $51,000 to transform the St. John's school yard! 

Below, are two of the generous donors, who contributed to meeting the school's goal:

God bless everyone for your generosity and let's continue to work alongside one another as we prepare for Build Day!
