£40,000 make-over for school playground

Promotional Feature

The Ryleys School has injected over £40,000 into transforming its outside play areas for the children.

Encompassing three different play spaces, the school has installed a brand new climbing frame with a swing bridge, climbing wall and slide in the Pre-Prep playground. While, a faux grass tunnel has been installed next to it, creating a truly bespoke play space for the children.

The Prep-School children have also benefited from the make-over with a wooden obstacle course and a wooden climbing frame with rope ladders, being constructed in their two playgrounds.

The money raised for the play spaces was done so by The Ryleys School Social Committee, which plays a key part in school life. The committee organises a busy program of activities including summer fairs, spring balls, coffee mornings and welcoming events for new parents to the school.

Head Teacher, Mrs Hamilton said: "We are extremely grateful to our parents who have donated so generously through various fundraisers and events. Our parents are extremely supportive of the school and all the children and staff would like to say a huge thank you. The children absolutely love their new playgrounds and it's been a delight to see them enjoy all the new equipment."

Funds raised by Social Committee events help to purchase special items for The Ryleys' pupils. In the past, these have included computers, interactive whiteboards, playground equipment, digital imaging facilities and the refurbishment of its swimming pool.
