The past year hasn't been easy for the majority of us, especially for our children with the closure of schools and the lack of social interaction with their peers. As we continue to adapt our lives to suit the new normal and begin to emerge from months of tough restrictions, we must look to the future.

The MSPA would like to create a lasting COVID legacy that would be benefit children now and would be around for years to come. Something that will be looked back upon as a show of resilience and strength of what we've all experienced over the past year.

One recurring thing that has been an important part of the fight against COVID is the need for fresh air. With that in mind we have approached a company that specialises in constructing Outside Classrooms Essentially a 5m x 5m wooden gazebo that will comfortably seat a full class of up to 30 pupils.

This new facility can be used for all sorts of outdoor learning, from numeracy and literacy lessons to drama, PE, art and so much more. The vision is not only to use the space as an outdoor classroom, but also as a hub for outdoor activities, Eco-projects and extra-curricular events (a bar for the summer fair!). We are excited about the many health and well-being benefits this new space will provide for our children.

Timings wise, we had originally hoped to deliver the project during school year 2020-21, to benefit our current year 6s. Unfortunately, due to high demand and supply issues of timber from Europe, the earliest install date would be September.

Our challenge is to raise fund to complete the project. We are currently in receipt of generous donations from Persimmon Homes, Safe & Sound Pest Control Tresidor Investment Management. However, we need to raise more and would like to invite anyone who feels they would like to contribute towards this project, to make a donation on this Just Giving page.

You can also start your own fundraising idea on Just Giving and link it to this project, How about a sponsored walk, silence or bike ride, maybe a bake sale? Every little donation really does help!

Thank for you taking the time to read this and a huge thank you to everyone who makes a donation. Well keep you posted on our progress!
