 Primary Playground Renewal

DRK School Council has organized a Playground Renewal project and has already raised $15,000 towards a new structure.  That, combined with generous contributions from community partners, including our local Carlingwood Loblaws and the City of Ottawa puts us well on our way to a new play structure. 

Are you interested in what the new structure will look like? Do you have ideas for other improvements to the primary yard? See our presentation to School Council for more information on the initiative. 

To get involved, please contact the Playground Committee by emailing Jena at
