Treloar’s Primary Playground Appeal
Treloar’s has launched an appeal for an outdoor play and learning area for the physically disabled children within the School to use during play and curriculum learning.
Why is it needed?
Unfortunately the School students don’t have an outdoor play area at the moment and we would like to change this. The new area will be specially designed to be wheelchair friendly; there will be a wheelchair track, an accessible roundabout and a nest swing. There will be sensory areas, learning areas, raised beds for growing, sand and water play all at accessible heights together with a wooden shelter, ensuring the area can be used all year round.
Many of our students are experiential learners, given their physical and cognitive complexities, and so we will ensure there are lots of hands on learning opportunities which encourage learning in a fun way. Students can also participate in Occupational Therapy and Physiotherapy through play - encouraging them to become more active and less passive in their environment. The project will also encourage and incentivise our students to spend more time outdoors which can help them to feel more alert and learn better in class.
What do we need to raise?
We have identified an appropriate area and the proposed playground will cost £40,000. So far we our generous supporters have donated £33,000 towards the project, but we still need to raise the final £7,000. Do please get in touch with Fundraising or visit our donation page if you are keen to donate towards this appeal. Any amount is appreciated and every donation will have a positive impact on our students’ health and well being.
