Trinity to play host to a pirate ship, play hut and toadstools

TRINITY Primary School’s playground is set to be transformed into a colourful and exciting area thanks to an Awards for All grant.

Pupils were delighted to hear this week that they were awarded £8,000 to develop their concrete playground into a place where they can all enjoy during play times.

With help and additional fund-raising from the parent council, the school launched the playground improvement scheme and prepared the application that would secure them the neccessary funds.

Acting headteacher John Riley said: “We were delighted when we got the news from Awards For All that our grant application had been successful.

“The new equipment will provide the children with a colourful, stimulating and exciting playground which we will utilise during lesson time as well as play times.”

Since the pupils found out about the changes, they have been involved in the process, choosing which equipment they would like to see in their new play area.

As a result, the playground will soon be host to a play hut and pirate ship, toadstools and a trim track, as well as wooden benches, planters and outdoor music panels.

Acting depute headteacher Cath Douglas said: “The pupils and staff of the school would especially like to thank the parent council for all their help, and all the parents who have supported the fund-raising events that have helped to pay for our new playground.”
