Pembridge Pupils Reach New Heights
Pembridge CE Primary School pupils can now stay fit whatever the weather thanks to a new indoor climbing frame, purchased with funding from the Kingspan Insulation Community Trust.
The fold away climbing frame is more challenging than your average piece of P.E. equipment. It includes several angled and straight ladders, brightly coloured fixed rings and four swivel rings which can be adjusted into three different positions for a fresh test!
In addition to their successful application for £2000 from the Kingspan Insulation Community Trust, the school’s PTFA also raised further funds through a number of events including school discos and coffee mornings.
Robert Hollis, head teacher of Pembridge CE Primary School said
“We were delighted to have received this funding from the Community Trust. The new equipment gives our children a fun and safe space to improve their health and fitness and to develop balance, co-ordination and other essential life skills.”
John Garbutt, Chairman of the Kingspan Insulation Community Trust commented
"It’s really important to set children on the course for a healthy lifestyle from a young age. The climbing frame offers an exciting and different way for the pupils to do that even when the weather isn’t great.”
