Warragul Specialist School students are revelling in new challenges in their redesigned playground.
The school’s occupational therapist Anne Collins said the school was initially just looking to update its play equipment but ended up with a complete revamp that aims to stimulate all the senses.
It includes Australia’s first “Venti”, incorporating 20 different play activities and challenges, a wobble bridge, a multi-spinner, sensory wall panels and music elements.
“The students just love it,” Ms Collins said. “It’s such a thrill to see it being used.
“We would never have thought this would happen just from upgrading a bit of equipment.”
