A sandpit for the Mordialloc Beach Primary School students
Mordialloc Beach Primary School is a community minded school of approximately 220 students. In 2018 we celebrated our 150th year, so in 2019 we are 151 years young!
We’d love to install a large sandpit for our students to enjoy at recess and lunchtimes. We’d build the sandpit at the end of the oval so kids in Beforecare and Aftercare at Camp Australia can use the sandpit as well.
The sandpit we’ve chosen has a wooden cover so it can be locked up overnight to keep the sand clean and dry.
The major costs associated with the project are
The major costs of the project are the sandpit and cover, the washed sand, hiring a lawn rotary hoe for 3 hours and hardware to secure the sandpit lid overnight.
The $1,000 grant will be used
Mighty Sandpit with Cover for $450 (Lifespan Kids).6 cubic metres of washed sand for $70 (Mordialloc Garden Supplies)3 hour lawn rotary hoe hire for $150 (Kennards)Hardware to secure the sandpit lid for (up to) $330 (Bunnings)
How they raise the rest of the funding
The $1,000 will cover the costs of the project. If our suppliers offer a discount we'll have funds left over to plant native trees near the sandpit to eventually provide shade.
