Beige - RAL NO. 1001
Basically, Parkstone Grammar is helping to give their girls the kind of confidence they can use to make a real difference in the world. So watch out, they’re going to be in charge soon!
But at Parkstone Grammar they don’t only create an amazing curriculum for their students, they also create the kind of spaces that give their students variety.
So when they contacted A&S Landscape it was to install an outdoor dining canopy, giving their girls the chance to spend more time outside and in the fresh air.
There are many proven benefits to alfresco dining as a part of the school day. As school children spend the majority of the day in a classroom setting, it is integral that they are given time to breathe at lunchtime. In spending this break in the fresh air, it not only promotes a relaxing atmosphere but can also decrease levels of hyperactivity in a student. If a pupil is forced to spend their break inside, it can echo the classroom environment and prevent them from taking a sufficient amount of time to relax. Eating outdoors is also an extremely sociable activity, unconfined by the dining hall setting students can talk with different year groups freely.
We installed a large Maxima Tepee, actually a double unit, to a size of 12000mm x 6000mm, with blue steelwork (RAL 5002) and beige fabric that looks smart and attractive and leaves a softer silhouette with less hard lines. We also added a tepee canopy to Bemrose Primary School in Derby. This playful but functional canopy means that rain never has to stop students venturing outside whilst also providing high-quality sun protection during the summer.
“The installation went really smoothly, we are very happy with it. It was heavily used throughout the summer, the kids love it!”
