Playground Opening - September 2015
École Meridian Heights School Advisory Association President Tracy Lebel had the honour of cutting the ceremonial ribbon to officially open the new playground at the school. Special guests were on hand for the Meet the Teacher BBQ and opening ceremony including MLA Erin Babcock, the Mayor of Stony Plain William Choy, Parkland School Division Board Chair Eric Cameron, Vice Chair Kathleen Linder and Associate Superintendent Scott Johnston.
Principal Cheryl Johnson also welcomed former Assistant Principal (Now Duffield School Principal) Brian Sydora who played an integral role over the course of the 2-year project that came to fruition this summer.
Part of the ceremony also included a cheque presentation from Alberta Recycling Management Authority Chairman, Bob Barss in the amount of $10, 090 which covered the cost of the recycled rubber mats that help make parts of the playground wheelchair accessible. He pointed out that the rubber mats on the project were the equivalent of 450 recycled tires!
