Busy start to the New Year - 25th Feb 2015

It has been a busy start to the New Year for Playgear™ by A.J Grant with playground refurbishments in a number of Kindergartens, Schools and Councils around the New Zealand.

Our services include relocating, refurbishing and/or maintaining an existing playground. We find these services useful with schools merging or other childhood educational facilities re arrranging equipment to suit their requirements.

One particular job which was completed, was a new playground in a school in South Canterbury, using some existing activities as well as adding some new exciting equipment from our Playgear™ by A.J Grant range. Because of the drought, one of the biggest problems we had was auguring the holes for the playground posts into the bone dry ground, necessity is the mother of invention!

The Summer holidays is a great time for us to work in Schools while the students are away and it also makes it an exciting time for the children to come back and start the new year to a completed, fun filled playground.

Shade Structure's and Shade Sails - 18th Feb 2015

Shade Structure by Playgear A well positioned shade structure can become the 'communal heart' of the school. Large groups of students can gather comfortably and used for a variety of activities such as eating lunch, outdoor learning and free play.

At A.J Grant we provide a programmed removal for shade sails for terms 2 and 3 and this allows warm winter sun into the area. This also protects the shade sail from strong winds and snow loading damage.

Our Manager attends NZAIMS Annual conference in Queenstown - 26th Aug 2014

Playgear exhibit at the NZAIMS conference in Queenstown The NZAIMS (The Association of Intermediate and Middle Schooling) conference was held in Queenstown last week, which our Playground Manager Allan Grant was lucky enough to attend and exhibit our range of Quality Play Equipment.

The conference provided a platform to exchange ideas, discuss current issues and to keep abreast of developments in the sector with educational leaders invited from all over New Zealand.

Allan was able to show a display of recent work we had done at Intermediate and Middle schools around New Zealand. Of particular interest was our custom made Flying Fox which we have installed recently in and around Dunedin. Another popular product was our Automatic Sliding gates which secures the entrance, keeping all children enclosed within the School. 

Held at the Adventure capital of New Zealand, Queenstown, surrounded by majestic mountains and nestled on the shores of crystal clear Lake Wakatipu, the conference was a success and a great learning opportunity for everyone.
