Expression Swing News
URGENT MESSAGE ABOUT THE EXPRESSION SWING™. Imagination Play are the exclusive suppliers of the original patented Expression Swing™ in Australia and Oceania. It is very disappointing that other companies have misrepresented our product as we have spent a lot of time and effort introducing this swing into the Australian market and ensuring it complies with current Australian Standards. Already one company has breached copyright patents on this product and have been advertising to the public showing our exclusive images and YouTube videos. This company has been contacted by our partner, the manufacturer GameTime™, a division of Playcore™ in America. This has resulted in legal action with them being forced to remove the product from sale. This process of retracting the inferior product and recalling all products sold is currently in action. We are aware that GameTime™, one of the largest playground manufacturers in the world have commenced investigation into another copy Expression Swing™ supplier in Australia which will no doubt trigger the same withdrawal of these swings which breaches their patents. Gametime’s design of the Expression Swing™ is fully compliant to the Australian Standards. We have worked hard to introduce this into Australia but we must advise everyone to be beware of inferior products that are hitting the Australian market. The Gametime™ Expression Swing™ is truly a wonderful product that took years of research and development with experts in the field of play such as Dr Stuart Brown MD. We are proud to bring such an innovative product to our market for all Australians to enjoy! http://imaginationplay.com.au/expression-swing/...

NEW PLAYGROUND A HIT
GULMARRAD Public School’s latest playground addition is such a hit with the kids, the school has had to introduce a roster outlining which classes can play on it and when so everybody gets a turn. For P&C president Jenn Chisholm the level of demand is a sign that their five long years of fundraising was worth it. “We are just so excited and happy to see the kids are having fun and enjoying it,” she said. “It’s been a really focussed effort from everyone at the P&C to get this playground equipment in so the kids can enjoy it. “We have been buying equipment piece by piece from funds raised at various raffles and sports days and stalls, so to finally get it installed is great.” Gulmarrad Public School principal Robyn Urquhart said the school was lucky to have a P&C that was committed to raising the money for the equipment. “They’ve had a real boost in numbers recently which helps, and everyone working together to this one common goal to help the school is wonderful,” she said. “It’s been a huge bonus for the school, the whole playground area has doubled in size but the equipment is the most popular spot. Climbing is important for everyone’s gross motor skills so it’s great to see them have this opportunity and enjoy this equipment.” Ms Chisholm said the P&C’s next fundraising event will be a stall on election day at the school.

MORE SCHOOL SUPPORT FOR STUDENTS WITH SPECIAL NEEDS Teachers and students are being encouraged to think about how they can improve school facilities for students with disabilities or special needs, with round two of funding now open under the Inclusive Schools Fund. Minister for Education James Merlino opened applications today while visiting Belgrave South Primary School to inspect work on a new sensory garden for students with autism, which the school is building thanks to a $100,000 grant from the first round of funding. The Andrews Labor Government established the Inclusive Schools Fund to help government schools build new facilities to better support the social and educational needs of children with a disability. Schools are encouraged to be creative and innovative with their ideas to make interesting and stimulating learning and play spaces that will benefit all students, including those with special needs. The Labor Government doubled the Inclusive Schools Fund in Victorian Budget 2016/17, meaning a total of $20 million will be delivered to schools over four years. Round two of the funding will deliver $5.5 million to schools across Victoria. The Fund is one of nine initiatives in the Special Needs Plan for Victorian Schools to ensure that students with disabilities get the same chances as other students, and fulfils a key election commitment. Applications close on 29 September 2016. Schools can download the guidelines and application form for the Inclusive Schools Fund at www.education.vic.gov.au/about/department/Pages/inclusiveschoolsfund.aspx Quotes attributable to Minister for Education James Merlino “The new sensory garden at Belgrave South Primary Schools will provide a new learning space that all students can enjoy, including those with special needs.” “I want schools to re-imagine their surroundings and come up with creative ideas about how they can be made accessible to everyone. No ideas are too big and none are too small.” Quotes attributable to Member for Mordialloc and Ambassador for the Special Needs Plan Tim Richardson “This Fund is helping make our schools even better for students with disabilities and special needs.” More School Support For Students With Special Needs...
