Kid Construction Crew works on IPS new playground equipment


With heavy equipment roaring up with the needed crushed stone to make the play site completely safe for children, this hard-working and very professional crew paused for just a moment from the job of erecting a brand new piece of playground equipment at Iroquois Public School on Tuesday, April 17. The new $20,000 upper body climbing device, painted in IPS colours, is the result of over two years of community minded fund raising events by the school students, teachers and parents under the leadership of the IPS Parents Council, which is co-chaired by Linda Sinclair and Joyce Latulippe. The Kid Crew, from the left Sierra Latulippe, Nathen Verhey, Vanessa Latulippe, Braden Verhey, Kolby Latullippe and Duncan Hutt, graciously allowed several parents to assist them with the work Tuesday evening. The generous support of Lloyd McMillan, the Prescott Building Centre, with landscaping by Eric Jansen and Tommy McMillan, meant that the play structure was ready for grades 3-4 to enjoy on Wednesday morning at the school.
