POLITICAL foes put aside their election campaign differences to unveil some top-shelf playground equipment at Giant Steps at Deloraine yesterday.
Tasmanian senators Eric Abetz (Liberal) and Lin Thorp (Labor) congratulated the specialist school for children and adults with autism spectrum disorders for its work.
The senators spoke at the handover of the play equipment for children aged three to seven years who cannot safely access the main playground.
``Many students need specialised teaching and I think that is beautifully embodied here in Giant Steps,'' Senator Thorp, a former special education teacher, said.
Senator Abetz said the school was a wonderful example of the community working together to provide a vital educational service.
The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints at Deloraine paid for the playground, which cost $14,000.
Deloraine church spokesman Lionel Walters said buying and installing the playground was the church helping the community in a practical way.
``Together with our associates of other religious traditions, we believe that it is through service and generosity - both as individuals and as churches - that the message of faith is most meaningfully expressed,'' Mr Walters said.
