Schoolyard Revitalisation

What is the Schoolyard Revitalization Project?

If you are new to Withrow, you might not know that Withrow’s schoolyard has undergone some major changes thanks to the fundraising efforts of the parents in the Withrow school community in conjunction with the Board.

Dating back to 2013, these changes include:

  • Revitalization of “the Pit” complete with natural rock seating, basketball nets, proper drainage and grading;
  • Installation of a proper sprinkler system and brand new turf for the field, complete with paving for a track, long jump and sand pit, and baseball cage;
  • Planting of multiple trees on the property.

The last piece of this massive undertaking was the installation of our NEW CLIMBER in Spring of 2019!
