A brand new Pirate Ship was in the playground when the children returned from their Easter break. The new Pirate Ship that was installed over the Easter break. This replaces the much-loved original that was showing its age and the obvious use of hundreds of children over the years. The new ship comes with more climbing activities and a new safety surface. The Pirate Ship has been funded by FOSP and we thank them for all the wonderful fundraising events that they have organised and all parents for their support of these events - we would not be able to provide the children with such an exciting playtime resource without the funding that comes from all that hard work.
Children have already had a chance to play on the new ship with their class before it is opened for general playground use on Monday 29 April.
There was an opening ceremony for the new ship on Friday 26 April after school to officially 'launch' the new piece of equipment. Mr Dickinson, Headteacher, thanked FOSP for their great work and introduced the children to sing a pirate song. Councillor Jonathan Cardy, who is also a governor, then christened the ship with some “bubbly” (paper streamer version!) before Chair of Governors, Fliss Syrad cut the ribbon with her pirate sword to complete the opening ceremony.
