Where do the children play?

. . . If you're at Elgin School, it's at this brand new playground (above), which was given a test drive by students.

Bad weather delayed the official opening and blessing to Wednesday.

Principal Janet Collier-Pio said the playground was also available for the local community to use. She thanked funders the Grassroots Trust, Four Winds Foundation and New Zealand Community Trust, as well as Gisborne District Council, who supported the playground project in-kind.
