Following the renovation of the area surrounding the Ashley Schaffer ELC Playground’s famous “Ziona’s Mud Kitchen”, and the pathway, the playground was reopened on Tuesday 20 November 2018. I was privileged to address the kindy and prep children and explain the benefit of outdoor imaginative play and investigation to grow their brains and bodies. I extend my sincere, deep appreciation to Hannah and Boaz Ben-Pelech for their generous donation, which made this renovation possible. The students were delighted with the loose parts they could manipulate within their restaurant setting, in the richly textured sand of their new kitchen playground. Miriam W, the grand-daughter of Boaz and Hannah, delighted in the wonderful, creative opportunity these special places provided. Thank you Hannah and Boaz, and thank you to the Kindy and Prep teaching teams, who deliver the best possible product to the kindy and prep students lucky enough to be in their care.

A plaque will be placed in the playground inscribed:

Ashley Schaffer Early Learning Playground

We thank Hannah and Boaz Ben-Pelech for their kind and generous donation, making these improvements possible.
