The youngsters at Craigdhu Primary School worked hard during the summer holidays to brighten up the whole 
playground.

Susan Hood, Chair of the Parents Teachers Association at the school, said that due to the coronavirus pandemic, pupils and parents had been told that the children would be expected to do more outside learning when they came back to school.

As a result, they decided to make the outside area as bright and appealing as they could.

Susan said: “Both children and parents have worked really hard over the holidays and the playground is looking amazing.

“It has really brought us 
together as a school community.

“New play areas have been created using tyres and pallets, painting has been done on the concrete and building, the playground has been weeded and tidied, and our wood area has been strimmed and tidied up.”

The PTA would like to say a special thank you to Crown Paints who donated brushes and paints to enable the children and parents to create colourful outside games.

Susan added: “This was our way to ensure our children have a lovely, bright welcome with many resources to aid their learning outside the traditional classroom.”

Craigdhu Primary School has a role of around 260 
pupils.
