Thistley Hough Academy in Staffordshire add Dining Shelter
Gentian Blue - RAL NO. 5010
They wanted to give their hard-working pupils the chance to enjoy some fresh air at lunchtime no matter what the weather. They had the perfect spot, a courtyard area which was looking for a new sense of purpose. A&S Landscape has helped hundreds of schools reinvigorate their outdoor spaces, so we knew that we would have a product which would work perfectly.
The canopy that was chosen for Tewkesbury School was from the Motiva Duo range. This canopy was built to an overall size of 14000mm x 12000mm and featured ALU-Tuff (aluminium box profile) guttering and downpipes. The colour was Mid Blue to match the school colours and the roofing in Opal polycarbonate.
Children no longer only have the option to dine indoors, they can be outside in the wettest and the hottest of weather. No need to huddle under trees or stay inside. I am sure that you will agree, the new school dining area is a real hit. We were delighted to work with Tewkesbury School and wish them all the best with their new school canopy.
There are a large number of confirmed benefits to alfresco dining as a part of the school day. As school children spend the whole day in a classroom environment, it is vital that they are given time to breathe at lunchtime. In spending this break outdoors, it not only promotes a restful atmosphere but can also ease levels of hyperactivity in a student. If a pupil is to spend their break indoors, it can echo the classroom environment and stop them from taking an adequate amount of time to relax. Eating outside is also an extremely sociable activity, unrestrained by the dining hall setting pupils can talk with different year groups freely.
Over on our blog you can find out how schools can encourage their students to eat alfresco regularly – click here.
