A public middle school, a public high school and a K-12 francophone school are set to be built in Airdrie within the next three years, but regrettably, provincial funds allocated to the construction of new schools do not include the construction of the playgrounds. 

Alberta Education's Kathy Telfer  says Alberta Education has never provided funding for playgrounds, although there are grants through the Culture and Community Spirit lottery program that schools can apply for. 

Meadowbrook Middle School was the most recent Airdrie school to celebrate the completion of a new playground.  Good Shepherd School has followed suit, and has begun fundraising for theirs.
