The Ministry of Education is reimbursing $29,000 to the Ashton Creek Elementary parents advisory council for playground equipment that’s been purchased.

“Parent advisory councils work hard throughout the school year to raise  money to support students and their learning, and it’s great to be able to  give back some of their hard-earned dollars,” said George Abbott, education minister and Shuswap MLA.

“PACs can use these funds for a wide-range of initiatives, including  enhancing their current playgrounds or purchasing additional equipment to  make them accessible to students with disabilities.”

School districts were asked by the ministry to identify schools that recently purchased playground equipment with the help of PACs which  would be eligible for reimbursements.
