Inner Western Courier Thursday Not Used Anymore : September 24 2008
4 INNER-WEST WEEKLY, Thursday, September 25, 2008 MB NEWS www.innerwestweekly.com.au Swing sensation simply satisfying Rehan relishes his first ride on the new Liberty Swing at Lucas Gardens School. Picture: Phil Blatch ~PP195332 THERE were beaming smiles on the faces of kids from Lucas Gardens School last week as they experienced the simple childhood joy of having a swing for the first time. Thanks to the children's charity Variety and sponsors ACN Pacific, the Canada Bay school's playground has been fitted with a Liberty Swing for children in wheelchairs. Lucas Gardens' principal Ann Roberts said there was great excitement about the new amusement. ''They love it, it is fabulous,'' she said. ''It brings so much pleasure to the children. That sensation of swinging is something that our children can't get anywhere and they find it thrilling.'' The school's 34 students are aged between 4 and 20 years, and all have severe intellectual or physical disabilities. About 95 per cent rely on wheelchairs. The school is building a special- purpose playground, including a sensory walkway, acoustic fence, special court for interactive games, landscaped gardens and bike tracks for modified bikes and riding. It will be known as Kaffir Plum Playground after a heritage-listed tree on the site.
