Children need space outside to play and develop skills of balance, imagination, strength, communication and teamwork. We want to build a playground that appeals to Nootka school students and the East Vancouver community.  Our school grounds are used not only by the 428 students at Nootka and their families, but also by others in the community: families with younger children, youth sports teams, Tai Chi classes and adults exercising to name just a few groups. Recognizing the widespread use by the community, our goal is to create an inclusive space where we all can play & develop in healthy ways – body, mind & spirit.

Wherever you are, please help our little East Van school keep our kids playing and active – every donation makes a difference!
