Pupils and staff from Grassmoor Primary School celebrated after taking delivery of some brand new creative learning equipment.
The school has been awarded a Story Teller’s chair, as a result of being chosen as one of five runners-up in the Ronseal Playground Project competition, beating thousands of schools across the UK.
The national initiative was set up by the woodcare manufacturer and leading playground manufacturer, Timberline, to offer schools struggling with budget cuts the chance to win a new playground.
In addition to the Story Teller’s chair, the school has also received £300 worth of Ronseal products and will be taking delivery of special Woodland Trust tree planting packs in November to help with eco-learning projects.
Jessica Otter, for Grassmoor Primary School, said: “We were very disappointed to miss out on winning a brand new playground but we are thrilled to have received the Story Teller’s chair and look forward to using it to help develop and encourage children’s reading at the school.”
Kate Hodge, for Ronseal, said: “We hope that pupils at the school will get enjoyment from story time for many years to come.”
