Children in the Wollondilly region will be able to enjoy a new playground thanks to a donation from The Illawarra Metallurgical Coal Community Partnerships Program.

The new playground has been built at Appin Public School, following a $43,000 contribution from South32 Illawarra Metallurgical Coal along with contributions from the school and its Parents and Citizens Association.

"This is a great example of Illawarra Metallurgical Coal working to support and strengthen our local communities," Vice President Operations at Illawarra Metallurgical Coal Jason Economidis said.

Appin Public School Principal, Vivian Harrison said: "We are absolutely delighted with our new playground. It gives our students a great new place to play, meet and exercise."

The Illawarra Metallurgical Coal Community Partnerships Program was established in 2004 to support community projects and initiatives in the region surrounding South32's Appin mine.
