A Brand New Playground That Excites
We are excited to announce that Bukit Timah campus will house a brand new primary playground come January 2020. In what would be one of the major facility revamps at the campus, the existing playground near the lower primary blocks will make way for a new and expanded facility, to be named the 'Forest Playground'.
Spanning over an estimated 650 square meters, the Forest Playground, when completed, promises to bring play and fun to a different level than before. The playground will include numerous innovative structures for both dry and wet play, suited for children ages 3 to 12. All equipment is manufactured and designed in Europe to the highest safety and quality standards. The structures offer varying degrees of challenges and stimulation for play, thereby promoting child development in terms of their creativity, physical and social development. The playground will be installed with EPDM safety rubber flooring. Our Head of Primary at Bukit Timah Campus, Mr Smith said, "More than a playground, we'd love to see how our students take advantage of these play spaces set within lush greenery (one of the few schools in Singapore with this strategic location) to explore and expand their imagination and be whatever they want to be. It is really a space where the ideology of learning to play and playing to learn comes alive".
Construction works to develop the Forest Playground are expected to be extensive. In order to avoid disruption to school, the revamp has been scheduled to take place during the semester break in December. Barring any unforeseen circumstances, the playground is expected to be completed around end of January 2020.
Chatsworth continuously strives to provide a welcoming and safe environment where our students can develop and grow holistically. We are looking forward to the days ahead where our students tell us they love to come to school everyday, more than ever.
