School Projects
Charlton Christian College
Keeping the school community fit will be a fun experience with this Outdoor Fitness Area that incorporates our three fitness lines of Healthbeat, Fitcore Extreme and Playbooster Fitness. A combination of the various pieces allowed the school to choose the equipment that best suited their needs and budget. The area was completed with a bright blend of blue CSBR Pre Colour Rubber.
St Thomas More's Primary School
Located in the ACT, St Thomas More's had an old tired playground structure, but a beautiful space with huge potential. The old playground was removed and a new Playsense Play unit installed into the existing bark mulch area with existing shade. The bark was topped up and a whole new play space created for the children to enjoy.
Chester Hill Public School
With a beautiful big tree to work with, a sensory play area was created for the junior area of the school. This included outdoor musical instruments, talking tubes, drop shot tower, cozy dome and some GFRC natural balancing pieces. The school now has a great place that is shady, engaging and fun!
Barwon Valley School
Barwon Valley School located in Victoria required a playground design that suited their community with kids of all abilities. Children that needed wheelchair and mobility device access, but also children that required challenging climbers. This wonderful Playbooster design ticked off all those boxes with 2 fun slides and packed with wheelchair accessible sensory panels.
Oxley Park Public School
This recently completed sports court was a huge project. Difficult site to access but the end result was worth it! This once boring asphalt area is now a bright multi purpose sports court with CSBR Pre Colour Rubber Wetpour, Line Marking, Concrete Edging and two reversible Basketball/Netball Towers. This court is going to be getting a lot of use!
Bishop Tyrrell Anglican College
An unused hill side was transformed into an outdoor fitness circuit using the Fitcore Extreme range. This was finished off with a plush 30mm thick Summer Prestige Synthetic Grass Surfacing. Installing along a concrete pathway added to the challenge of the circuit. Once complete, the kids then run back up the hill to start the circuit over again.
Yennora Public School
Two areas were worked on within Yennora Public School. The first area in their special needs unit required new equipment, rubber surfacing, sandpit and shade.

A Sensory play Panel zone was also included, and then a general play area. This consisted of a Cozy Dome, Block Climber and Fly Wheel with CSBR Rubber.

Now they have plenty of places to shelter from the sun! The Hip Roof Shade area was then finished off with Synthetic Grass, Concrete Pathways and a Running track.

Gumbirra Pre School - St Clair
Gumbirra Pre School – A small play space required shade however, posts from a standard type of structure would have created too many obstructions in the area.
