Paintbrushes were at the ready at Dunboyne Junior School on Thursday 12th June as a dedicated Intel Involved team gave it their all to inject some vibrancy, colour and fun into the faded playground. For the past two years the pupils have had to make up their own lunchtime games due to the barely visible paint on the ground, after years of wear and tear.
The cost of re-painting by a private company would have been extremely significant, so vice-principal Eileen Brosnan approached Intel Involved for assistance, with project co-ordinator Ashley Maybin only too happy to round up a team.
The team came from the Intel Fab 24 Yield department, hence this was not only an opportunity for a change of scenery but for a chance to do something rewarding in the surrounding communities of the Leixlip site.
The team of 6, after being kitted out in very stylish painting gear, began work immediately. Group and individual games from hopscotch, snakes and ladders, and number games to a maze were painted by the team, ensuring that there was a wide variety of amusements available for every child during break-times.
Sinéad McGuire from Fab 24 Yield Department said “The team got stuck into the job at hand and luckily the rain held off long enough for us to complete our project, I’m confident the junior school kids will love playing in their vibrant playground”.
Vice principal Eileen Brosnan praised the team for giving up their time after work and said that she could not wait to see the children’s faces when they come to school they next day.
