New nature playground welcome addition at East Fremantle Primary
East Fremantle Primary School students had an added incentive to return to school in 2020 with a new nature playground.
Part-funded by Fremantle Ports’ Community Investment Program, students returned on the first day of school to a pleasant surprise - a brand-new nature playground made possible by a $5000 grant via the program.
Principal Jennifer Chittick said the school now had a magnificent playground named SS Fremantle Ports for the students to set sail in every break time.
Fremantle Ports’ Manager Corporate and Community Relations Neil Stanbury said the nature playground would not only encourage students to be outside and active, but be a space for them to develop their creativity and imagination.
“We are always keen to support local communities,” Mr Stanbury said.
In the past year, Fremantle Ports has supported 47 different community organisations, events and initiatives, across its four key areas of focus - community enrichment, education, environmental leadership, and arts and culture.
Grants are available to not-for-profit organisations and schools to support community projects and aim to support and empower people and communities in the catchment areas.
