Global Motion™ is Launched Today. New climbing structure accommodates large groups of kids while remaining easy-to-turn
Global Motion™ is a freestanding, rotating climber that welcomes entire groups of children aboard for a fully-inclusive, multisensory experience. Even when loaded with kids, Global Motion remains easy to turn and control thanks to a patent-pending progressive resistance mechanism which keeps things rotating at fun, yet controllable speed.
Children who love to climb and turn now have infinite play possibilities in their reach. Sensory-rich activities like Global Motion help children develop the skills necessary to engage, change and impact the world around them. In particular, playground activities with motion provide a fun way for kids to develop better depth perception, balance and cause-and-effect skills.
Community Playground Build at Sir Wilfrid Laurier Schools
What a whirlwind of a week! On June 24th and June 25th, 2013 over 150 Circle K International (CKI) volunteers from all over North America set out to build two new playgrounds for Sir Wilfrid Laurier Elementary and Sir Wilfrid Laurier Annex. A lot of rain and even more mud didn’t stop these volunteers from getting the job done and the wet weather definitely did not dampen their spirits. It takes a very special group of people to show up on site in the pouring rain with smiles on their faces, full of motivation and support. The playground build was a truly inspiring scene and Habitat Systems feels so proud to have been involved in such a meaningful project. We would like to thank everyone from CKI, Kiwanis, Landscape Structures, theVancouver School Board and the Sir Wilfrid Laurier Schools and PAC members who were out there every day in full support of the project and willing to lend a helping hand.
The projects came to a close on Thursday, June 27, 2013 with ribbon cutting ceremonies at both schools. The principal, Janet Souther and Vice Principal, Rosie Poetschke gave wonderful speeches, expressing their gratitude to everyone who made these projects possible. The ribbons were cut, marking the official grand opening of the two playgrounds on the very last day of school before summer holidays. The Sir Wilfrid Laurier students and surrounding communities have two beautiful new playgrounds to play on this summer and the timing couldn’t have been better!
