New spaceball has landed at Hume Elementary.

The spaceball has landed at Hume elementary

It took more than a year, but fundraising efforts have allowed a new climbing structure to be built at Nelson's Hume Elementary.

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.
