Rhymney Comprehensive add New Outdoor Dining Canopy
A new Welsh language school has opened in Wrexham. The community primary school for three to 11-year-olds is located on Delamere Avenue and will be known as Ysgol Bro Alun after its naming in February.
The long-awaited new school was proposed for Gwersyllt in January 2012. In May 2012 Welsh Government education minister Leighton Andrews gave the go-ahead for the £5.9m school with the government paying £4.1m towards the costs of its construction. Planning permission was granted in June 2012 after it was agreed a new Welsh medium school was needed to ease over-crowding. Building work on the new school by contractors Harry Fairclough began in July 2012 and completed in September 2013.
The new school will share a headteacher and governing body with Ysgol Plas Coch, seeing Osian Jones take the helm. Mr Jones said: “It’s very exciting, the parents have been here for an open day and are very impressed – The facilities are second to none.”
A common but under-researched realm of social and emotional development in children is appreciating the importance of spending time outside and how substantial the effects are. For such a fundamental fragment of childhood, the gaps in research here are somewhat startling. Not least because, the research that currently exists establishes that there is clear evidence that outdoor time, like outdoor play, or outdoor classrooms, has a substantial positive impact on a child’s social and emotional development. These emerging studies come from many disciplines using a broad range of approaches that all lead to the same stance.
Specifically, studies concentrating on; risk-taking, sensory skills, confidence, and anxiety show how outdoor play positively influences children’s social and emotional development.
Each classroom of the school has direct access to external covered play and learning areas, which means pupils can go out come rain or shine. A&S Landscape was engaged by the local authority to design canopies for the school and taking into consideration many factors and preferences designed 6 canopies based on the Motiva Cantilever range using Auto Cad, Solid Works and Google sketch-up models to ensure the scheme would look and function as proposed.
Employed by leading builder Harry Fairclough A&S Landscape manufactured, supplied and installed the canopies boasting unbreakable polycarbonate, aluminium guttering, galvanised and PPC steel frames on time, in budget. We also worked with Maes-Y-Llan Primary School in Wrexham, where we added a multicoloured polycarbonate roof shelter.
