St. Catharine School wishes to construct a playground on St. Catharine Parish grounds to serve the school, parish, and surrounding local community in time for the start of the 2019-20 school year. Due to a parish construction project and outdated playground equipment, the previous playground was removed and therefore no playground exists on the parish/school property. To accomplish this goal, the school aspires to raise the necessary funds to purchase new equipment for a beautiful, full-service playground that will meet the needs of our parish, school, and the community surrounding the parish and school and to install the new playground adjacent to the St. Catharine Athletic fields.
Provide a community space: St. Catharine is located on a border between Columbus and Bexley. For many students and families who live contiguously to the parish and school, there is no formal park or play area.
Provide an active multi-age space that will accommodate the youngest of our children in the community and create inviting and challenging elements for older children in the school and community as well.
Provide a special needs vision: The creation of a welcoming, inclusive active play structure for children of varying physical, social, emotional, and sensory needs.
