Our Playground is Ground Rubber FREE!

Dear families,

You may have seen several news stories about the dangers of some artifical turf products. The safety of our children is paramount, and we made numerous considerations in choosing our ground covering for the EC Campus. Please rest assured that our artificial grass is NOT the turf being discussed in the media.

The turf on the TIS EC Campus playground is Synlawn artificial grass which is made especially as a safe playground covering. It does not contain any recycled rubber from tires.

It is also an effective padding for short falls and does not harbor bacteria or heat up in the sun. It is quite fun to play on as well!

If you have any questions about our turf and playgrounds, please feel free to contact our Facilities Manager, Frank Bojanowski, at FrankB@intlschool.org
