Grade 2 students from Hume elementary had their first chance, on Wednesday morning, to play on the new Berliner Spaceball that has been installed at the front of the school.

The climbing structure is an ambitious, $50,000 project that began back in the Fall of 2012.

The Hume School Parent Advisory Committee began organizing fundraisers and filling out grant applications to make this idea a reality.

A checkerboard style sponsors recognition plaque is located on the ground, beside the new structure.
