St Peters Lutheran school in Blackwood, South Australia, chose to install a Junior School Exersite from Replas which is specifically designed for primary school children to provide a safe, effective and enjoyable exercise experience. The equipment and signage are made from durable recycled-plastic. This not only reduces the amount of plastic going to landfill, but also creates a durable product which will not rot, crack or splinter.
After excavating the area, Replas garden panels were used to construct a small retaining wall. Then the surface was created using recycled rubber, which not only ensures the entire installation is sustainable, but also sends a strong message to the school community about the importance of recycling and using products made from recycled materials.
The school is very pleased with the final product which students can use for PE classes, but it has also proved to be a very popular area of the playground during break times.
