There will be more playground equipment for students to use at Ecole St. Joseph School in Whitecourt, as Living Waters Catholic Schools is planning on relocating the equipment from the old site to the new school.
To accommodate the structure next to the existing playground at the new site, there will need to be more land space. The school division sent a request to Town Council asking that an additional 20 metres by 30 metres of land be provided, and Council accepted the request.
Mayor Maryann Chichak says its a win-win for the town and school.
While the request was accepted, an agreement over the use and allocation of the land has not yet been formalized, so Administration will bring back an agreement at a later date before the equipment moves.
