Tree Tops Adventure Playground Opens at Redeemer

Redeemer Lutheran College is excited to open its brand-new tree tops adventure playground which was constructed throughout Term 3. The new nature-based playground is a first of its type in any Australian school, bringing Redeemer's outdoor and indoor learning closer together.

The new adventure playground is nestled in amongst the trees in the basin area at the rear of Fred Davey Oval in the Junior School. The playground features elevated bridges and pathways up in the trees, together with climbing ropes and swings. Back on the ground, there are spaces that allow students to interact and socialise together, in addition to a table-top magic sand tray where students can create, imagine and play together.

Beautiful artworks are a feature of the playground.  Throughout the construction of the playground, the builders noticed a pair of Tawny Frogmouths in the middle of the grounds sitting together on the same branch every day, so they have incorporated them into the design by carving them into the entrance of the playground adjacent to a life-size goanna!

A fire pit area has been created near the playground as a 'yarning circle' where classes and groups of students can gather together. Each seat is made of carved timber logs and has been beautifully painted by a local aboriginal artist.  

The new playground which was initiated and funded by Redeemer Outside School Hours Care has been given the thumbs up by our OSHC Vacation Care students, the first to experience the new adventure playground!
