Aging playground equipment may get a boost in the Kootenay Columbia School District

The Kootenay Columbia School district is hoping for some provincial funding to help local Parent Advisory Councils in their quest to replace aging playground equipment.

Superintendent Bill Ford says with declining enrolment, school boards haven't been any position to fund equipment.

He says one of the NDP's election platforms was to acknowledge how hard parents have been working to raise funds for aging equipment.

The Ministry now says there's money on the table that districts have to apply for.

They're applying to the Ministry for funds for playground equipment efforts at Glenmerry and Twin Rivers, where parents have been working towards replacing equipment.

No word on when the funding announcements would come through.
