The students at Burgeo Academy are excited about the work that will take place at their playground over the summer, after they recognized a challenge realized by one of their friends and took action by writing the Provincial Government. Kindergarten student Brooke Durnford has cerebral palsy and uses a wheelchair to get around, but had some difficulties in areas of the playground. Recently, CBC News profiled the story of the Burgeo Academy students and how their efforts are expected to help their friend have an easier time at the playground when she returns in September for Grade 1.
