Yorkshire Region Opens New Sensory Room & Roktagon Climbing Frame

EORL Crabtree of the Huddersfield Giants Rugby League side came along to open the new sensory room and Roktagon climbing frame at Christ Church school, Huddersfield. He officially cut the ribbon to declare the project open on behalf of Wooden Spoon Yorkshire region.

Head teacher, Lisa Walton-Thorpe explained how the sensory room was used to create a safe and calm space , helping children with emotional difficulties to concentrate. Once Eorl had cut the ribbon pupils, staff and governors were on hand to show the room working. And the fun commenced.

In the playground the Roktagon provides a climbing wall experience, but is built to challenge the children at relatively low and so safe heights. As playtime began the pupils were soon demonstrating the fun to be had from this equipment.

Stuart Watson, Yorkshire Region Chairman, commented ” Christ Church school are clearly going to benefit from the new sensory room and the Roktagon for many years to come and Wooden Spoon members will be delighted to see our funds backing such a good scheme. Our thanks also go to Eorl Crabtree of Huddersfield Giants, for joining us to open the new facilities and sign numerous autographs for star struck pupils. ”
