The Hall Primary School in Glenfield Wow Their Children with Multicoloured Canopy
Ultramarine Blue - RAL NO. 5002
Edna G Olds Academy is an inner-city school situated within the vibrant community of Lenton, Nottingham. There are currently 227 pupils on roll who truly reflect the diverse cultural heritage of the wonderful local community.
The academy has excellent facilities, which includes a modern purpose-built Early Years Foundation Stage unit, wonderful outdoor learning play equipment, and an ongoing commitment towards the provision for new and emerging technologies.
When the Academy came to sourcing four canopies for various areas of the school through an architect’s practice, we were delighted to be able to assist with Motiva Linear canopies complete with side panels and roofing coloured to match the school logo! With a range of colours for the roofing, we found that a smart Blue steelwork (RAL5002) with roofing in Amber, Lagoon and Poppy made the Motiva Linear feel like part of the schools DNA. We also installed a colourful roof canopy at St Edburgs C of E School.
Adding a Motiva Linear can make a big difference to any space and we have a wide range of colour options that mean it can be tailored to your school’s identity or simply add a flash of colour as a bright, bold design feature.
Health is detrimentally impacted by not getting ample exercise, leading to increasing numbers of obesity in children and adolescents. Children are not playing outside as much as they have done before, limiting their exposure to sunlight and thus the creation of Vitamin D which helps to fight infection and keeps skin healthy. Sunlight also helps to regulate the formation of melatonin which regulates sleep. Phones and tablets emit harmful blue light, which can cause headaches and eye strain. Blue light in the evenings can even restrain the production of melatonin, which in turn can make going to sleep very tough for some children.
So what is the answer to this slippery slope that we find ourselves on… More time outside!
