PUPILS at a primary school played their part in helping to create a new outdoor learning area.

The youngsters at St John’s Primary School in Rowlands Castle were buzzing with ideas in a design workshop.

‘Our school grounds are a major resource and powerful tool for learning’, said headteacher Kay Pennicotte-Henrie.

‘The recently completed nursery school garden has been a great success - but it has made the rest of the school site look a little tired. We now want to breathe new life into the rest of the school grounds.’

It’s the children who are forming the brief for the master plan through design workshops led by Johnny Rath of Fabrik UK.

And they want to see tree houses, mazes, logs for seating and wild flower meadows to name just a few ideas.

Mr Rath said: ‘I loved spending time with the children. They’re a great set of kids, very well behaved and very creative.

‘They had lots of ideas and we’re going to take them all away and develop them into a master plan.’

Fundraising is set to begin soon.
