Iona School children returned from the half term break and were delighted to discover some new play equipment in the playground and on the land. Here are some pictures of Class T/1 and Class 2/3 children trying out the multi-coloured Climbing Wall and learning to slack line on the land. Both test the childrens agility, balance, coordination and are simply great fun!

The school purchased this equipment with the money raised from hosting NESTT weekends at Iona School.
