Diggle Primary School children will receive much needed outdoor classroom equipment thanks to a generous cash boost from Angie and Billy O’Reilly, landlady and landlord at the Diggle Hotel .
The £500 donation will help Diggle School buy toy JCB diggers and outdoor climbing equipment, for its youngest pupils. This will coincide with the school’s development of its new Early Years Unit.
Headteacher, Nigel Fowler, who joined the school in January said: “We are very grateful to Angie and Billy for their donation. There are some really exciting changes happening in our school and we want to ensure it continues to be a fantastic place to learn. Providing outstanding facilities and equipment is fundamental to our long-term vision.”
The Early Years Unit will be up and running by the end of this school year and be ready to welcome new pupils in September. There will be an enclosed outdoor area which which will include an organic vegetable patch, sensory garden, music zone, race track, digging area and a mud café!
