St. Anselm's New Playground

$214,673 of $250,000 goal

Raised by 40 people in 10 months
St. Anselm Catholic School celebrated its 75th Anniversary this past year. We are a community school with approximately 350 students from JK – grade 8, from the North Leaside, South Leaside, Davisville Village, Thorncliffe Park and Hyde Park communities.

The current playground is failing our children and our community.  Our school occupies one of the smallest footprints in the Toronto Catholic District School Board. Our  concrete playground is shared by all students grades 1- 8 (approximately 350 students) and is in need of repair and redesign to better accommodate our children. There is little green space, uneven asphalt, and tired play structures.

OUR EXCITING PLANS FOR THE NEW PLAYGROUND includes a mix of a multi-purpose sport surface, new climbing structures, shade trees, natural elements for imaginative play, dedicated parking, and a repaved surface!

THE NEW DESIGN WILL TRANSFORM OUR SPACE, TO BETTER SUPPORT BOTH THE EDUCATIONAL AND RECREATIONAL NEEDS OF THE STUDENTS AND THE COMMUNITY AS A WHOLE.

As 2018 draws to a close we are pleased to share some exciting news and progress updates!

The TCDSB has committed to funding the re-paving and sub-surface portion of the project budget! This is a huge
achievement and reduces our fundraising goal significantly. We are now targeting to raise $250,000. 

The playground revitalization is now very much within reach and with the school community's continued support we will have shovels in the ground to start construction this summer!

To begin construction summer 2019 -- we must have funds raised by February 2019.

Sincere thanks for your support!

Funds raised through the gofundme site are transferred through the St. Anselm Parent Council bank account to the TCDSB. All donations of $25 or more are eligible for a tax receipt. The transfer of funds is managed by Michelle Raino, St. Anselm CSPC Treasurer, supported by Donato DiPaolo, St. Anselm School Principal.
