Robert Price contribute to Blaenavon Primary School’s outdoor learning area
Blaenavon Heritage VC Primary School have a brand-new shelter for their ‘Forest School’ outdoor learning area, thanks to Melin Homes and a donation of materials from Robert Price Builders’ Merchants.
The 21st Century Christian school are at the heart of their local community, laying the educational foundations for students to live happy and fulfilled lives with healthy minds and bodies.
The inspirational ‘Forest School’ offers learners all sorts of great opportunities to learn new skills, enhance their confidence, build their self-esteem, and work together as a team.
Each year group takes part in a variety of activities, including den building, minibeast hunts and identifying flora and fauna, with hands-on learning being a key part of the school’s philosophy.
However, with the British weather being forever unpredictable, an outdoor shelter was just what the school needed.
Working with their local Housing Association, Melin Homes, South Wales Builders’ Merchants Robert Price were thrilled to be a part of the project.
“We were delighted to support this local community effort by donating a range of materials for the project,” said Molly Pike, Marketing Director at Robert Price. “It’ll be great to see how the shelter and new outdoor learning area are being put to use for years to come!”
Nikki Westwood from Blaenavon Heritage Primary is over the moon with the results:
“The volunteer team have built a fantastic outdoor area, bringing students even closer to nature and able to make the most out of fresh air learning,” she said.
“We’d like to say a great big thank you to both Robert Price and Melin Homes for all of their help! This shelter allows our Forest School to fully flourish, enabling pupils to reap a host of enriching benefits.”
