STUDENTS and staff at Rosella Park School are thrilled to have a vibrant injection of colour into their playground.

Thanks to the generous donation of a $20,000 shade sail from Theiss Engineering, the children at Rosella Park School are now able to safely enjoy their leisure time.

The impressive purple and green sail encompasses the entire junior playground area, with principal Kate Russ overwhelmed at the addition.

"It is a fantastic celebration today," she said.

"The splash of colour the shade sail provides is visible from the front gates of the school and we are so very appreciative."

Rosella Park School students presented Theiss Engineering representatives with two equally colourful posters to show their gratitude.

Michelle Caterson, an accountant for Theiss Engineering said she felt honoured to be present at a parade on Wednesday where the engineering and services provider was thanked by the school community.

"I'm really proud to be a part of today," she said.

"I think it should be compulsory for all playgrounds to have adequate shade.

"We were so happy to be involved."

School captains Anne Sunderland and Ben Janson took centre stage to express their thanks in front of the large gathering.
