Our Pod Play Journey
Research shows there is a need for different types of play environments to be made available in schools for children to use whilst they are out in the playground.
We decided to use sea containers as Pods in the Early Childhood and Primary areas.
A company named SEA CONTAINERS WA expressed an interest in helping us in our quest to provide fantastic play opportunities for our students.
The company donated two shipping containers and has kindly offered to fully fit out these pods including installation of shelving and doors as well as painting.
We are so grateful and cannot wait for the day they are finished.
