The students thoroughly enjoy using them and are now popular areas of the playground. the team at Grounsplash were helpful when it came to decide on what markings and gmay 3rd  2013 170ames we would like. Marion was able to show a number of colours and images from other schools and there was not a problem if we wanted to design our own game or choose different colours. They were able to work around us when it came to arranging a time to mark the play areas We would not hesitate to have them back if we required more games or markings in the future.”

Principal of Emmanuel Christian Community School, Girrawheen, Western Australia

When we decided we would like to have some useful ground designs to encourage our students with the time tables, the map of Australia and counting (Kindy and Pre-primary), we spent a lot of time trying to find a company that did this sort of work. When we finally found ‘Groundsplash’, although the product looked great, the company was in South Australia. We decided to go ahead and make a contact despite the interstate adders and we are so glad we did! Marion listened carefully to our requests and offered helpful suggestions and advice and was swilling to travel to Perth to undertake the job! Marion, Colin and their team arrive on time, completed the work very professionally (despite the rain) and called back some time after the job to see that all was well. Students, staff and parents have been delighted with the designs. The play on and learn the times tables, test one another on state names on the big map of Australia and the kindy/pre-primary children use the number snake to line up and read and count numbers. We are happy to endorse their product and commend their company for any work in schools.”

“Groundsplash has added colour and vitality to our outdoor play and learning spaces. Our Hopscotch and Snakes & Ladder designs have been enthusiastically embraced by all members of our school community. Our students are may 3rd  2013 173developing a broad range of collaborative and independent skills when creating, negotiating and playing games on and around the Groundsplash designs. It is great to see our students engaged in active play at recess and lunch times. Our teachers are utilising the designs for engaging students in learning experiences which challenge and reinforce conceptual understandings across a number of curriculum areas. Our educational support staff utilise the designs to work with students in a fun and creative way, allowing them to develop confidence and achieve success. Marion and Colin were wonderful to work with. They listened to, and were responsive to our needs. Their communication and punctuality were faultless, and their follow up after installation was superb. We thoroughly enjoyed the entire process and were especially impressed with the creativity they brought to our vision. Thank you, Marion and Colin- I can’t wait to add to our designs!”


 

Desiree Gilbert

Co-odinator for the Junior Primary and Early Learning Centre at St Peter’s Woodlands Grammar School, Glenelg, South Australia

“We have recently had a roadway design painted on a courtyard area between two buildings by Groundsplash. The end result, a colourful, motivating roadway design, is both fun and appealing to our Preschool and Junior Primary children providing bike riding opportunities developing gross motor skills and dramatic and creative play. It has also quickly become an invaluable resource for teaching and reinforcing Road Safety rules. Children can role play crossing the road safely in a fun and meaningful manner, therefore supporting our Health and Road Safety Programs. Marion and Colin from Groundsplash were creative and receptive to our needs in their design and were efficient and reliable with meetings and with the final “painting” process. Their willingness to fulfil our needs and friendly manner made business pleasurable.”

Co-ordinator for John Morphett Primary, Morphett Vale, Adelaide

“Thank you Marion and Colin for bringing the Groundsplash concept to our school. The staff, children and parents think our choices of the grid & three way hopscotch is a great way for the children from Reception to year 7 to learn through playing. The grid has been used for mapping, games learning to go left, right, backwards, forwards, learning numbers and alphabet. The flexibilty of being able to adapt the games like we did with the 3 way hopscotch has enabled us to bring in some many learning areas within one game. It’s great hearing the children during break times talking about putting each other in teams using the colours we put the odd and even numbers in, counting in two’s and other children out with chalk filling in the blank squares choosing different times tables. We also have to thank you for listening to us and adapting the alphabet/number circle as the children are connecting letters to what number they are in the alphabet. I can’t recommend your product enough as I see first hand the various ways classes can incorporate the games into our curriculum and fitness programs but also the children using them in their free play times. Some of the other benefits that we have seen is it encourages language, getting along, problem solving, imagination while keeping their bodies and minds active. Well done Marion and Colin you have opened up so many new ideas for playgrounds with a safe, durable, interactive and colourful product I wish you all the best for your business.”

‘Groundsplash’ have our strong endorsement. We wanted variations in the  normal playground designs and the postive response to our creative ideas has seen original work featured in our school. The frill neck lizard  complements the rainbow snake and the sundial is a link to our “Living Systems”outdoor learning area. The graph allows multipurpose links to activities and our school logo stands out at the main gates”.

 “Our new court markings have made a huge difference to playtime and PE lessons at our school. Students are playing traditional games such as snakes and ladders but have also made up their own games. We have also been able to incorporate literacy games into our letter snake and numeracy games into our snakes and ladders board and shapes.”
