Pupils at Portpatrick Primary had a wonderful new addition to the playground this week. After watching the construction work in awe all of last week, pupils were delighted to be able to cut the tape around the new playground equipment and get stuck into the new inclusive outdoor gym. Back in January our wonderful Parent Council applied to the Kilgallioch Community Benefit Company grant and was awarded £7664 to go towards a new outdoor gym. The fund supports projects that engage and empower young people and improve the quality of life, health, and well-being of those in the community. In a year where health and wellbeing has been a priority for all, the new equipment couldn’t have arrived at a better time. A huge thanks to all those involved and who helped to put the application together. The children are absolutely delighted with the new equipment and it looks set to be enjoyed by many for generations to come.
Below are some photos of the children enjoying the new equipment. Big smiles all around! 😀
