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's Metro Grocery Store Brings "Fuel" to St. John's Students!

This past Friday, May 7, our local Brownlee's Metro Grocery store brought the "Fuel for Kids" program to St. John's Catholic Elementary School

St. John's staff and students enjoyed a complimentary lunch provided by Metro's team sponsors, along with a visit from the Schneider's Race Team! Our students appreciated the great BBQ lunch and a special snack pack, and even got a chance to see the 500 HP Schneider's race car and could receive an autographed photo of the car, signed in person by race car driver, Dave Connelly!

After the St. John's school visit, the "Fuel for Kids" team made a stop at the Perth Metro store later on Friday afternoon from 3pm-7pm, to host a BBQ and display the Schneider's race car! All proceeds went towards St. John's School new playground! Thank you Brownlee's Metro!

Excited St. John's School students check out the Schneider's race car brought to the school by Brownlee's Metro last week! 

Race car driver Dave Connelly was a huge hit with the children, who enjoyed a free lunch compliments of Perth's  
Metro grocery store, while receiving autographs and talking about Schneider's funky race car!
