Eco Play for all

Wales

Mount Stuart Primary School, in Cardiff embodies multiculturalism, with more than 40 languages spoken at the school. Many of
their pupils live in flats, without access to outdoor spaces, so creating a place to play and explore was vital.
The school had a vision to create a sustainable play area with equipment formed from a single fallen tree. Wooden Spoon Wales loved the idea and provided a £12,800 grant to realise the creative dream.
The result is not only beautiful, but gives the children the space to have fun, let off steam and challenge themselves.
Former rugby International and record breaking explorer, Richard Parks, was delighted to open the adventure area:

“Play is the gateway to adventure. There’s a deep understanding that the school serves its community through the kids, beyond their academic needs, it’s a safe, healthy, and happy place.”

Headteacher, Helen Borley, said:

“We are all thrilled with our new play area; it’s sustainable, natural, and beautiful, but more importantly the children love it. Without the support from Wooden Spoon, this project would not have happened and from all the pupils at Mount Stuart we would like to offer huge thanks.”
