Recently, the Rotary Club of Welland was approached by Stacey Savignac, the principal of Nouvelle Horizon, an elementary school on Quaker Road, to help fund a “natural” playground for the school. This type of playground incorporates opportunities to interact with nature on play as well as scientific components. Studies have found that this type of play area, which incorporates natural elements such as trees, logs, and stone, enhances the students’ learning experiences in a far greater way than traditional playgrounds.
 
The Rotary Club of Welland approved a grant of $2000 toward this play area, but the total cost of this venture is about $50000 and the school is trying to raise the balance for the next five years from the community.
