Clunes Public School needed a new play area for students that is sheltered and can be accessed by students in wheelchairs.
Federal Member for Page Kevin Hogan secured $15,000 to put towards the project and today joined students to officially open the playground.
“This is a fantastic new facility that will be used by the whole community,” Mr Hogan said.
“The area now has wheelchair access, soft fall rubber on the ground, shelter for weather protection and low level climbing and play equipment for the students.”
“These upgrades mean the playground is now safe, durable and suitable for all students at the school.”
Clunes Public School Principal Michelle Slee was excited to see the playground opened today.
“This is an inclusive playground that all students of age and ability can use together,” Mrs Slee said.
