When the playground equipment at Korokoro School in Lower Hutt, New Zealand, fell into disrepair, the Board of Trustees needed a solution that wouldn’t mean years of fundraising.

Metal Art—the New Zealand distributor for Replas—came to the rescue with a refurbishment that included using recycled-plastic components to replace split and rotting timber.

‘Over the course of the school holidays, our pupils effectively got a new playground,’ says Principal Martin Hookham. ‘What’s more, for the school community it came at a small fraction of the cost of replacement.’
