Extraordinary journeys begin with world-class play

Physical, social and emotional wellbeing are valued equally to academic performance at Northern Beaches Christian School (NBCS). Designing and building a state-of-the-art playground was a ‘must’, so KOMPAN were chosen as the play partner for the project to support their strategic plan to foster a love of learning in students both inside and outside the classroom.

Since opening the new, one-of-a-kind playground, children and parents have been overwhelmingly supportive of the new space and physical activity during recess and lunch has skyrocketed.

“We love learning here at NBCS, and we love it inside and beyond the classroom. What we’ve been working on … is to ensure that the campus is the classroom – inside and out.”

Tim Watson, NBCS Principal

Fostering a love of learning through play

The stunning custom Sky Walk x Jellyfish Corocord play structure with its transparency attracts children to challenge themselves to climb and experience the excitement of the structure from all angles. The high-capacity flexible climbing net allows children to feel the presence of their companions who are also climbing and build social and emotional bonds. Children learn how to take turns and help each other as they are climbing and traversing the Sky Walk.

The spacious platform and suspended pommels inside the Jellyfish make for an excellent meeting point for groups. Social-emotional skills such as self-regulation are trained while relaxing with friends inside the Jellyfish, while balance and bone density are developed as children climb down the rope column or zoom down the slides to the lower level of the playground.

In the junior play area sits a split-level hub with enthralling embankment play that provides a thrill and an opportunity to develop key physical and proprioceptive skills with friends as they climb and slide together. Between the rubber mounds that spark children’s imagination are classic jumpers which are as popular as ever with school-aged children. The small size of the Jumpers makes them perfect as connectors between the junior and senior play areas, and places where children can practice important weight-bearing activities to develop bone density and key motor skills like rhythm and balance.

Joy of movement: motor skills, muscle, cardio and bone density
Joy of being together: teamwork, tolerance and sense of belonging
Joy of learning: curiosity, understanding of causal relationships and knowledge of the world
