Kids have their say after school picks up £1,000 prize in Gazette competition
2:38pm Tuesday 8th October 2013 in News
SCHOOL children are celebrating after new playground equipment was installed after they won a Gazette competition.
King’s Ford Junior School, in Gloucester Avenue, was picked as the winner and took home £1,000 of Sport Safe equipment.
The children were tasked with selecting three pieces of equipment they wanted.
They settled on shimmy ropes, tyre hopscotch and crossover beams.
Karen Wallace, head at King’s Ford Junior School, said: “We are extremely pleased with the equipment, which will form the first part of an exciting adventure trail in the school field to be completed as we raise more money.
“Improving our playground provision has been a high priority for the last three years and the competition funding has made a lot of children very happy indeed.”
