The school children of Newfields are extremely fortunate to have fabulous play spaces for use during class or lunch recesses. There is a playground directly behind the school that is extremely safe, attractive and most of all, FUN! We use the playground with the permission of the Newfields Recreation Commission which oversaw the construction of the playground and maintains it to this day. There are also large playing fields behind the NES building on which children enjoy chase games as well as various ball games. The Newfields Youth Athletic Association oversees the maintenance of this play space. We assure that there is always an adequate number of trained staff on hand to supervise the play spaces during recesses. Students develop strong, healthy bodies through the exercise they receive during recess. Also, school playgrounds are the students’ social laboratories where important lessons are learned about caring for one another, sportsmanship, sharing, being a good friend and much more. We enjoy and value recess as an integral part of the student experience at NES.
