Portsmouth Rotary makes donation to Greenland school’s rock wall

GREENLAND — Thanks to the Portsmouth Rotary, Greenland Central School will be able to have a second 12′ rock wall installed and used during PE classes and after school activities. Justin Finn, president of the Portsmouth Rotary Club, said: “Portsmouth Rotary has been helping the Seacoast community for 99 years, and providing great opportunities for kids in Greenland is consistent with our efforts to make the greater Portsmouth area a better place for all. ”

The current rock wall at Greenland Central School is a representation of students’ incredible fundraising efforts for the American Heart Association. GCS has participated in The Kids Heart Challenge fundraiser for the past nine years, raising over $57,000. US Games, a provider of PE equipment, rewards schools with gift certificates to use towards purchasing new PE equipment. GCS has received two 4-foot by 10-foot traverse panels and safety mats with these earned gift certificates. In 2019, Stacey Gosselin received a Clipper Grant of $2,000 to purchase two additional traverse panels and safety mats. With Portsmouth Rotary’s donation, GCS will be able to complete the goal of having two 12-foot traverse walls for students to use.
