LOOK: Volunteers transform outdoors at town centre primary school

Rugby Editorial 25th Jul, 2018   0

WORKING up a sweat on one of the hottest days of the year, a team of volunteers, parents and children helped transform the outdoor area at Northlands Primary School.

Volunteers from Jaguar-Landrover (JLR) helped the town centre school make the most of its land by building a teepee, a reading hut, a greenhouse and a gardening area on Tuesday (July 24).

Parents, children and Deputy Mayor Bill Lewis joined the JLR team for the final stages, and planted flower seeds and bulbs.

Assistant head teacher Tash Bonehill said: “The aim of the project was to promote a healthy school, creating an eco area for pupils to grow, plant and care for and learn about nature. Pupils now have an area to recycle and care for the world.

“As a school we appreciate all of the support from the JLR team. It has made a huge difference to our school environment.”

The JLR volunteers said it felt good to complete a worthwhile project which makes a different to the younger community.
