Staff and students at a special needs academy are delighted with their new outdoor learning area.
The Woolgrove School facility – which features a classroom and extensive wildlife area – can be used to develop children’s understanding of woodland, pond and meadow life.
North Herts Road Runners provided lighting, heating and science equipment towards the project at the school in Pryor Way, Letchworth, while Lloyds Bank helped the school out with a £3,000 community fund.
Headteacher Sue Selley, speaking at the official opening, said: “This is a wonderful provision which will be well used by a wide variety of groups.
“We really appreciate all the people who have supported this endeavour.”
