West Kelowna schools get new playgrounds

Students at Constable Neil Bruce Middle School and Glenrosa Middle School will be getting some new recess terrain to explore.

On Friday, Premier Christy Clark announced $8 million would go towards 44 new playgrounds and playground upgrades for schools across B.C.

The West Kelowna middle schools will each receive $50,000 for a new playground.

“These new playgrounds will be a great way to enhance the school experience for all students in Kelowna,” said Westside-Kelowna MLA Ben Stewart.

Currently there are 1,347 public elementary and middle schools in B.C. Forty-four of those have been identified as having no playground equipment at all; therefore, those schools will be given first priority for the funding.
