School Council Transform the Park

On Thursday 9th March, the Ranelagh community gathered together to officially open the brand new park. Complete with a crocodile swing, a pirate ship, climbing frames, an outdoor learning space as well as gardening facilities, our new park promises to be an exciting place for learning and fun for years to come.

The redevelopment of the park wouldn’t have come to fruition had it not been for the tireless work of our school council. Over the last few years, the children have been integral to the whole process, choosing and modifying designs and holding various fundraising events to help raise money for the development. So, it was fitting then that our school councillors were the ones to officially unveil the new park, with our very own ‘ribbon-cutting’ ceremony. Diego, the chair of the council, remarked on how significant this was. “I’ve been at Ranelagh ever since Nursery and it’s so cool to be a part of changing our playground. It looks amazing and the children love it.”

The ceremony began with the choir singing a brilliant rendition of ‘Ain’t No Mountain High Enough’ followed by our Executive Head Teacher, Mr. Paul Harris and our Head Teacher Mrs. Lawrenson reminding us all of the remarkable journey the school has been on to get to this point. Members of the community were jubilant about the changes to the park, commenting on how even the fences look stunning!  Chair of the PTA, Ms. Bixby, added “This is absolutely wonderful. It’s brilliant to see the children having so much fun on new, exciting equipment, enjoying the fresh air, having fun and learning!”
