Once completed this new outdoor space would be fit for purpose in a modern day School. It will increase the opportunity for imaginative play, exploration, exercise, and learning in a safe and accessible setting for our students and wider community.
This project would take all of our fundraising for the next 5 years which although a fantastic project, would have a detrimental effect on the current School community if we cannot cover our other regular commitments to them; and therefore we must look elsewhere to raise the funds.
The health and wellbeing impact would be immediate for the School community, as would the health and safety improvements for those who love a bit of health and safety!
The mobile phone camera used is a good one... The playground really is this bleak and uninspiring!
We are the Friends of Keelham Parents Association, and our main focus is on supporting the School community through our volunteered time and fundraising.
Our annual fundraising consists of regular events in our small School setting. We can attract very generous donations from within our community, but as we are small we cannot fund larger projects such as this without external support.
The funds we raise annually provide the School with the opportunity to subsidise or pay for school trips and other activities so that no child is unable to attend due to the cost. The remainder of our money raised goes on extra classroom resources as basic as paper, pens, and resources to make learning more engaging.
Without external support we cannot realistically realise this project, and the playground will remain an unwelcoming, unsafe, and restricted area.
We plan to redevelop the area outlined in red which is our main playground, pick up/drop off point, and area used for outdoor and fundraising activities... The majority of our School outdoor space.
