Two local schools are the only ones included on a list of projects eligible for playground funding under a new provincial government program.
They are the Peace Wapiti Division’s new Whispering Ridge School and Grande Prairie Public’s new Roy Bickell School.
The grants are for up to $250,000 for playgrounds.
The province announced $20-million for this program today in Calgary.
