Province pitches in $75,000 for playground

Premier Alison Redford announced $75,000 in grant funding for an Okotoks school’s playground Friday and said Albertans can expect more school announcements in the upcoming budget, despite the tough fiscal times.

Redford toured Good Shepherd School, listening in on student presentations, visiting classrooms and handing out books to students before handing over a cheque to students on the school’s existing 22-year-old playground.
