PACs reimbursed for playgrounds
Parent Advisory Councils (PACs) at three Langley public schools will receive $141,387 in reimbursements for playground equipment.
The funding is part of $2.4 million to reimburse PACs throughout the province that recently purchased playground equipment with funds they raised.
Parkside Centennial Elementary in Aldergrove will receive $50,000, Uplands will have $41,387, and $50,000 will go to Willoughby Elementary’s playground.
The money, which reimburses what PACs paid for playground equipment, is part of the $8 million that Premier Christy Clark announced in September for new playgrounds, reimbursements, and playground upgrades, repairs and replacements. Districts were asked to identify schools that had purchased adventure-style playground equipment using PAC-raised funds since Jan. 1, 2011.
