The Group's Purpose

The council is working with the WEJ primary teachers, kindergarten students and local expert playground designers, who will help us decide on the best play elements for the children. All money raised using this group will go to the directly to the cost of the playground. New playgrounds are a joint project between the WEJ Parent Council, the OCDSB and the City of Ottawa. This new playground has an estimated cost of $60,000. The school council has fundraised $20,000 to date and has received a grant from the school board for $25,000. The goal of this donation campaign is to complete the funding by raising the remaining $15,000. Tax receipts will be issued for all donations. To be ready on time, construction must occur this summer. Therefore we need to have our fundraising completed by early spring to get the playground this year.

How to Help

Whether you're a WEJ parent, a Beaverbrook resident, family/friend of either, or just a kind hearted individual, we need and greatly appreciate your help and support. Any donation amount is appreciated and helpful!
