School Playground

The playground works are complete with just snagging to be done. We now need to have all the works passed for health and safety by both Edinburgh Council and ROSPA and then wait for the grass to seed. We might have use of it before Christmas if we are lucky!

 

As part of our improvements in the playground we now have several willow insect sculptures around the school. these can be found at our welcome garden by the front gate and near the entrance to the school.

As part of our extension work, we now have a fantastic 3G pitch for pupils to use at playtime and lunchtime. We also use it for PE lessons during the day, and have a range of equipment to use on it.

We are working on making changes to our school garden this year. Working with Edinburgh Living Landscapes and the pupil Gardening club, we have removed some overgrown shrubs and broken fencing and are preparing the ground for planting in the spring. We hope to have some vegetables , herbs and colourful shrubs in the garden and to plant an area of wildflowers nearby.

Our willow den is taking shape and we hope to see it start to grow in the spring! It has 2 tunnel entrances and is built around one of the trees in the playground. Our thanks to the KPSA for funding this as it was one of the items pupils were keen to see in the playground when they were asked.
