New play area for school


Children at Karitane School have a whole new play area to explore after parents and community members rebuilt the play equipment.

The school received equipment from Flagswamp School when it closed earlier this year.

The flying fox, monkey bars and slide have been incorporated into a new fort area, and this connects to an existing play hut. Right: Karitane School pupil Max Cadden (6) tries the flying fox.
