Students at our Lady of peace are rejoicing after receiving an expansion to their playground.
Friday morning students as-well-as staff and the generous donors gathered outside to bless and dedicate their new playground. With the donations the school was able to receive new mulch, three new pieces of equipment and two new benches.
It’s something school officials say they recognize is much needed for the children at their school.
“We know that play is so important for our students to interact, to grow, to form memories, to form friendships and it was made possible through a few donations from very special people in our Our Lady of Peace family and we thank them today,” said Principal at Our Lady of Peace School Maureen Kerr.
The expansion of the playground was made possible by the Evan G. Roberts Trust through BB&T Bank and the Nettles family in memory of Saundra Kaye Nettles.
