New Electronic Playground at Glendon School
Glendon School has an interactive new playground. A state-of-the-art electronic playground was unveiled in Glendon this week, the NEOS 360. NEOS 360 combines the attractions of electronics with movements. It features eight games, one and two player options, and one freestanding user control panel with player instructions on the back. The equipment has received such rave reviews that the teaching staff had to come up with a play schedule to ensure all kids had a turn at the new playground.
The system, which was installed at the grade 4/6 playground, was made possible through the Glendon Parent Advisory Society and a Community Initiatives Program grant from MP Genia Leskiw and Alberta Lotteries. It is believed this is one of the only outdoor systems in northern Alberta if not western Canada.
If you would like to see NEOS 360 in action, there will be a special unveiling ceremony Thursday, October 9th, at 3:00pm.
