Morgan Elementary celebrated the opening of their much-anticipated rainbow playground this month.

Parents, teachers and students were all on hand to mark the special day on April 4 and thank sponsors for helping bring the project to fruition.

Parents of the South Surrey school – led by co-ordinator Kym Parsons – fundraised for months for the $125,000 playground, which would replace the aging and overused apparatus they currently had in place.

The elementary students could barely contain their excitement for the new playground, which Parson noted has space to grow.

With the foundation already in place, there is a corner of the playground that could be filled with another apparatus when funds allow.
