Monday 6th November was a very proud day for our school, as we had the formal opening event of our new outdoor classroom! This exciting new facility has been the culmination of a £10.000 lottery grant, and a huge fund-raising drive over the last couple of terms to raise the rest of the money. A huge thank you to all our families who have supported this fund-raising drive in so many ways, and got us to our £4,000 target far more quickly than I thought would be possible.
I was delighted that we were able to secure the service of local story-teller Michael O’Leary (The Hagstone Storyteller) for the children to celebrate the opening of our new outdoor classroom. It proved to be the perfect setting for a magical day for all the children!
You can get a sense of the atmosphere that Michael created from these pictures of the day:
