Parkside school gets $50,000

Parkside Centennial Elementary in Aldergrove will receive $50,000 in reimbursement for playground equipment from the province.

Parkside Centennial Elementary in Aldergrove is one of three Langley public schools which are receiving a total of $141,387 in reimbursements for playground equipment.

The funding is part of $2.4 million to reimburse Parent Advisory Councils throughout the province that recently purchased playground equipment with funds they raised.

The schools in Langley School District which will receive a playground reimbursement are Parkside Centennial Elementary ($50,000), Uplands Elementary ($41,387) and Willoughby Elementary ($50,000).

“From health to team skills, playgrounds are integral to early development in students. This funding will help schools make developing these lifelong lessons safer and more fun,” said Fort Langley-Aldergrove MLA Rich Coleman.

School districts will be reimbursed directly by the Ministry of Education, and will be responsible for ensuring their PACs are reimbursed appropriately.
