Hargreaves Mall playground: Students deliver verdict

Students from Camp Hill Primary School have written to the Bendigo Advertiser, outlining their preferred option of the three playground designs for the Hargreaves Mall. 

This is what they wrote and, as you can see, their response was overwhelming ...

We are voting for a new playground. I like the dragon because the eyes move. I like the trampoline because it is bouncy. The dragon will be scary for some people. - Henry

I would like the dragon playground because it has decorations around it. I like it more than the others because it has more fun things than the other parks. - Kade

I am very excited that you are building a new playground. I think the dragon one is the best because children can follow the trail of dinosaur footprints and see where it leads.

I also like the playground because you can go in the moving tunnel and you can move its eyes. And I love the colours. Please build the dragon playground. - Chelsea

I love the dragon playground because it is fun. Please you make the dragon park. I will go and play in it. It is good. - Emma

Please could you build the dragon play area and I like the trampoline. - Mid

The playground is colourful. The eggs are silver. The playground looks fun, it has lots of colours. I like the like. The eggs look like the best. - Georgia

I like the big red dragon playground because it looks much more fun than the others. The little kids will like it when they get to slide down the tongue.

You can pretend that the dragon is looking for food by moving the eyes; you can play imagination games by following the dragon's footprints. It looks very colourful with the beautiful forest and the colourful rings. It is the best one. - Jordyn

We are voting for the dragon playground. I'd like to jump so high on the trampoline I'd touch the sky and then I'd like to turn its eye.

The footprints look so cool. I wish I could follow them to the pool. It is better than all the other playgrounds. - Maddi

I want you to build the dragon playground. I want to spin. - Peppa

We are all voting for the dragon playground because it looks colourful.

The eyes go round and you can go inside the head. The tongue is a slide. The trampoline looks big. There are three golden eggs. There are rainbow hoops and footprints. There is a whooshing tunnel. - Lucette

I like the garden one. There are talking phones and you can talk to a friend. There are bubbles, stepping stones. I want to know where they go. I think they lead to the playground or maybe to the garden please chose that one. - Sarah

I hope you will build the boat and house playground. I will really like it. I like the boat because I would drive it. I would sweep on the boat. - Ryder

Can you please build the big red dragon playground. I like it because it has a big trampoline and sound tubes.

It looks better than the others. Big kids and little kids will like it. If you look carefully you can see golden eggs. You can play imagination games. I hope you build the dragon. - Jorja

I like the look of the dragon and I like the trampoline and the long green poles. - Elliot

I like the trampoline and I like the decorations, I like the footprints. I think they lead to a wizzy dizzy.

The dragon one looks really really fun. - Amy

We will be happy to see you build a playground. I like the dragon one because it has a trampoline.

I like the golden eggs. The eggs look real. Please can you send us a note? I like the colour red. It will be awesome when we go there. We can play hide and seek. - Jai

I like the dragon one because I like the eyes and they twist. There is a slide and a talking phone it looks more fun than the others. - Penelope

I hope you choose the dragon because I like the foot prints. I like the playground and the trampoline. I like how the tongue is a slide.

The garden is made out of poles. - Riley
