PJ Community Park
Our school’s park was the vision of school parents and community members who came together to create something truly unique and beautiful. From our Garden Boxes to our Wetlands, First People’s Healing Circle and Outdoor Class spaces, the PJ Park stands as a flagship outdoor educational space on the North Shore.We hold monthly gardening events. Maintaining our park and the school gardening program relies on volunteer-led initiatives. When your children participate in gardening at school they feel they become stewards of these green spaces and they take pride in their park. It is also educational and fun! There are many opportunities to get involved with the PJ Park and you can start by joining the PJ Park Committee. Contact Laureline Balzan.
