Griffin State School
Griffin State School have pushed the boundaries of the typical ‘post and platform’ school playground design resulting in a unique playscape that pays homage to the schools motto ‘Anchored in Excellence’. School students can set sail on the high seas at lunchtime with their new, custom ship. Catering to a range of ages and abilities, the ship is filled with play from the bow to the stern.
Bursting with play activities above and below deck, the play piece encourages the development of social, cognitive, active and creative skills.Mini captains can hop aboard the craft by scaling the rope climbing nets or walking up the stairs where they can fire the canon at nearby pirates. Steering the ship to dry land is easy with binoculars and a steering wheel. A treasure chest below deck encourages manipulative play and swinging hammocks encourage passive play for those who do not liek the rough ‘n’ tumble of a playground. The ship is built from recycled and recyclable materials that are durable and maintenance free, making the students seafaring adventures to continue for generations, not years.
