Our Children have Space!

Monday 9th May was a fabulous day for our children as they were finally given the space they needed to run, play, and have fun! Pupils from both sites joined together to enjoy the new school playing field, now complete with pitch markings and even goalposts.
The field is looking wonderful – a safe, level, well-drained and most importantly usable space, just as we had originally planned. Thank you so much to everyone who has contributed to our campaign – we have raised a massive £30,500 towards our £32,000 target so the end is now in sight and we are in the process or working towards installing changing facilities in time for the start of the Autumn Term.


Children top up totalisers…

As the target gets a little closer the children are topping up the ‘Race for Space’ Totalisers located on the school walls… we are now approaching £26,000 out of the £32,000 we need to raise…

Totalisers go live!

The Race for Space totalisers have been installed in the Cuddington and Dinton playgrounds…

The totalisers, located on each site will allow everyone follow the fundraising progress.  This red area on the totaliser represents to current outdoor space at Dinton and the area to be filled with blocks represents the area of the new playing field.

So far it is 65% full so we still have a way to go to get to our target of £32,000 and get the playing field ready for the children.

In the future the blocks will be sold and decorated by children. The decorated building blocks will be used to create an installation to mark to opening of the new school field and the people and companies that contributed to its successful creation.
