Ashton school gets new activity area
February 16 2011
Pupils at one north-west school have been celebrating this week after a new outdoor activity area was unveiled.
St Andrew's Church of England Primary School was able to build the new playground thanks to a grant from the Big Lottery Fund, the Lancashire Evening Post reports.
Assistant headteacher Joe Dryland said the said the school was keen to provide pupils with healthy and enjoyable activities.
"This project allowed us to link together the importance of our Healthy School and Healthy Heroes (healthy school dinners) with the additional aspect of regular exercise in order to promote healthy lifestyles. Using recycled material will also help in the drive to become an Eco School," he told the publication.
Headteacher Susanne Hesketh said the new playground will provide youngsters with years of enjoyment.
In related news, the York Press reported last week that Sand Hutton Church of England School has also been awarded a grant for a new outdoor play area.
The new playground will feature everything from a nature trail to a butterfly garden and learning shelter.
