Westminster playtime just got a little more exciting thanks to the class of 2022. The 6th graders were inspired to leave behind a legacy for the lower school upon their ascent to the upper school, and their gift comes in the form of a new Gaga Ball pit. The sport, which originated in Israel, became popular among students who discovered it at last year’s fall retreat.
Spearheaded by WA dad Bryan Turner, a design was laid out and plans were made to help bring the students’ vision to life. Class parents chipped in with donations to make the project a reality. After several (HOT) August workdays where students hauled rocks, dug in the dirt, sawed, hammered and spread mulch, the Gaga pit was born. Current lower school students will certainly enjoy the addition to their recess activities for years to come.
