The Brunskill Home and School Association and Brunskill Playground Committee members would like to thank everyone for their support of our project to replace the aged playground structure on our school grounds.
With VVCA’s initial contribution of $15 000 to the project in April 2016 we were able to secure over $50 000 in government grants with the help of Mesa Canada Consulting Corp.
We continued our fundraising with magazine sale campaign, monthly hot lunches, movie nights and a Brunskill Anthology book which included works from almost every student in the school in April 2016.
We had two Move-a -thons in May 2016 and May 2017. With the students’ participation in collecting pledges and being active by walking, running, scootering, rollerblading or biking around President Murray Park, this event generated $25 000 in donations! We also had our first ever bike garage sale – “Turn your Bike into a Playground” – where we collected donated bikes and then sold them with all the proceeds to the playground raising close to $1500.
With generous donations from the students and families of Brunskill School and residents of Varsity View and beyond we have almost reached our goal.
Our goal was to fundraise $215 000 and with the $35 000 contribution from Saskatoon Public School Division we would build a $250 000 playground.
At this time, plans are being finalized for the playground with construction to occur in July and August of 2018.
The brand new playground will be ready for the start of the 2018-2019 school year.
Thank you to VVCA and all the students and families that have made this project happen.
This success was possible with the incredible team of volunteers contributing their time and expertise to our fundraising events.
We will continue to fundraise until Mid October 2017 for the remaining $35 000 we need to reach our final goal.

Thank you for your donation towards helping build Brunskill School’s community playground!
The importance of play in a child’s academic and social development is often overlooked. By bringing playground equipment to a Saskatoon Public Schools community, we can make further headway towards engaging and developing young learners.
Remember that it isn’t just the school and students that benefit from a new play structure – it is a community and public park accessible to all in the neighbourhood and beyond.
