Fort Sask Catholic Schools Playground Society

$170 of $700,000 goal

Raised by 3 people in 4 months
This school year the Fort Saskatchewan Catholic schools transitioned from 3 schools to 4. We gained a new high school, our junior high was moved to the old high school building and our elementary school was split into two schools and a little less than half the students were sent to the old junior high school turned elementary.

With that being said we now have junior high students (Grades 5-8) at St. John Paul ll in a school that has no playground or equipment for the students to play on.
We have Pre-K - Grade 4 students at Our Lady of the Angels playing on very old equipment that was designed for junior high aged children.

At St. John XXIII (Pre-K - Grade 4) we have a tarmac space that has been destroyed by the movement of portables and construction.

St. Andre Bessette is a new high school, but they are lacking an outdoor gathering space.
We have decided to break this huge task into 3 phases.
Phase 1 -St. JP2
Phase 2 - OLA
Phase 3- SJ23 and SAB

We will need an estimated $700,000 to complete all of these tasks.
We have applied/will be applying for several grants for this and if we receive the grants we are hoping for, then the amount we must raise to go with the grant will drop. But because the grants aren't a guarantee and could take quite some time with the possible changing of governments during the two upcoming elections and money being tied up until they decide on their budgets and some of these grants available to apply for may no longer even exist.

Please share this Go Fund Me with everyone you can, we also need a lot of help with events. If you would like more info about volunteering please email us at fsplaygoundsociety@gmail.com you may also check out our Facebook page 'Fort Saskatchewan Catholic Schools Playground Society'
