They'll be able to get brand new equipment which will help keep kids safe and give physical education teachers more ways to get creative.

"Some of these kids are using equipment that's been around for 20 years. They're good kids and they take care of the equipment best they can but through wear and tear over time, sometimes it needs to be replaced so it's going to be pretty exciting for the kids when they get new equipment brought in for them," said Peter Crescimanni, physical education teacher, principal.
