It looks like a Surrey school will get its playground after all thanks to a generous donation of $30,000.
This comes after thousands of dollars vanished from the account of K.B. Woodward’s parent advisory council in late September.
Presidents of the K.B. Woodward PAC Krystal Dumais says it’s a great gift to students.
“Amazing news, it’s such a weight off our shoulders because we were starting from scratch again.”
She says a huge weight has been lifted and students will now get their playground.
“This has been our plan for three years because they’ll have more options for the intermediate kids.”
And calls have already been made.
“The playground is going to cost us $33,700 and we are a little bit short still but we should be there by December with the fundraising that we have going on.”
The donation was made by the owners of Townline Homes.
The school had been saving money for a new playground for three years when up to $30,000 went missing from a PAC account last month.
A second school, Serpentine Heights Elementary also discovered missing funds from its PAC account.
Surrey RCMP says the investigation into both cases are ongoing.
