Springfield Primary School is appealing to parents to dig deep to help transform the school’s garden area – but they are not talking about using spades and forks.
The school recently secured £2000 grant for outdoor musical instruments, and they are hoping it can be the overture to a transformation of the school’s sensory garden learning area – but for that, they will need help from the wider school family.
“We’re looking to revamp the whole area, and we’re lucky enough to have secured £2000 of funding from the Ernest Cook Trust, which is an outdoor learning charity,” said Springfield’s business manager Samantha Keefe. “That’s a good start, but we really need more as we’d love to be able to incorporate smell and sight related elements into the garden as well."
“Usually appeals to parents are to help fund things like classroom equipment,” Mrs Keefe explained. “People might not think of outdoor facilities in the same terms, but they’re just as useful and necessary an educational tool. The money the Trust has donated is a great helping hand to get things going, and now we’re hoping Springfield parents will also be inspired to help and get involved with what we hope will be real asset to the school and everyone associated with it”.
