Trout Primary is thanking the community for giving back in a big way, the size of a new playground. The primary’s playground has been an area for improvement for the campus and donors came together to provide a beautiful, new playground for the students to enjoy for years to come. The campaign to raise funds began at the 60th year celebration where Trout alumni came back to see the campus and reflect on the good memories at the school. As donations came in, the new playground began to look like a reality. The staff started mapping out the look and design of the playground and had it completely installed at the end of November. Presently, the students are having a ball using every piece of the new equipment.

Cindy Nerren, Principal at Trout Primary, said, “Without our loving community who supports our school and wants the best for our students, this project would not have been possible. The generous donations to our playground fund made our dream a reality. Thank you.”
