Students at Holy Rosary Catholic School are now enjoying playground updates that were installed this summer.

The existing playground was in dire need of updating and repairing, so the old, damaged equipment was removed and replaced with a large obstacle-course style playground structure, a disc swing, four-person seesaw, a zipline, a spinner and a ball pit. New security fencing was also installed around both playgrounds to ensure the safety and security of students and staff while they use the playgrounds during the school day.

Holy Rosary has been following a hybrid instructional plan since Aug. 10, which provided families with the option of in-person learning or synchronous virtual learning. In-person classes are able to use the playground daily for their scheduled recess time.

Students at HRCS have been raving about the school playground.

Ryan Oneugbu, a fourth-grader at Holy Rosary, loves the zipline and the spinner on the middle school playground. “I like to go as fast as I can on the zipline and try to make it all the way back to the platform,” he said.

Oliver Dib, another fourt-grader, agreed. “I love everything about the playground. We use it all!”
