Kingsfield provides funding for the Goonawarra Primary School ‘Ninja Warrior’ playground

Moremac Property Group and Kingsfield Sunbury are proud to have provided funding to enable the construction of the new Goonawarra Primary School ‘Ninja Warrior’ playground and facilities. 

The new Grade 5 and 6 playground will help to improve the overall health and fitness of the students, as well as giving them the opportunity to have some fun as they try to conquer the course and the ‘warped wall’.

The health and well-being of future residents is a high priority and is one of the reasons why you can find an abundance of open spaces and parklands for kids (and parents) to explore within the Kingsfield community.

We are committed to supporting the existing and future Sunbury community. It’s our pleasure to support local Sunbury businesses and community organisations that create the opportunity for people to engage with each other, such as East Sunbury Football and Netball Club, East Sunbury Cricket Club and Goonawarra Primary School. 

Moremac’s Bryce Moore believes that supporting the wider Sunbury community paves the way for Kingsfield to become a place that people are proud to call home. 

“Future residents will rely on many local businesses and schools in Sunbury. It is therefore important for Kingsfield to become an integrated and supportive part of the broader community.”

‘Playground fit for a TV show’

Goonawarra Primary School pupils have a new and exciting playground that promises to be all sorts of fun.

The new grade 5 and 6 playground, inspired by the hit TV show Australian Ninja Warrior, features monkey bars, jumping stones and a warped wall.

The playground was installed at the school last month and was co-funded by the school and real estate developer Kingsfield.

School principal Dolores Giordimaina said the playground provided a range of physical challenges for the senior pupils.

“It was an opportunity to rethink our play opportunities for our older kids because those playgrounds were designed 30 years ago and our kids are different in regards to what they think is fun and entertaining,” she said.

Teachers consulted the pupils earlier in the year about a desired design for the playground and majority of pupils requested a ninja-themed playground.

Grade 4 pupil Eloise said she was looking forward to playing on the playground with her friends once she could return to school.

“It’s [the playground] amazing, it was exactly what we asked for,” she said.

“It looks like it is going to be lots of fun. My favourite thing would be the warped wall because it is a challenge.”

Ms Giordimaina said funding the playground would not have been made possible without the help from Kingsfield.

“For a school to get to this level of funding it does take time to save funds and that kind generous donation really sped up the process,” she said.

“Now we are waiting for our lovely students to be active and be in a space where you can interact and have fun.”
