Oldcastle Primary School needs your vote!

01 November 2017

Oldcastle Primary School are appealing for public votes to help them win up to £25,000 from the Aviva Community Fund to overhaul their playground.

The Aviva Community Fund gives out funding to local projects that are making a positive change in their community.  Oldcastle Primary have applied for funding in the health and wellbeing category so that they can develop their playground into a multi-use games area for pupils.

Oldcastle Head Teacher Jeremy Malessa Thompson said: “Our playground is in desperate need of an overhaul. We would like to be able to create a multi-use games area for a whole range of sports and other activities. The school playground is a focal point in our school, however the hard surface does not allow us to utilise the facility area as much as we would like. 

"If successful we would use the funding to redesign the playground into areas that would enable more of our children to participate in sports activities and outdoor learning opportunities, and we hope the local community will be able to support us!”
