Spending time outside has been shown to reduce stress and help concentration – both key priorities at a time when children's well being and academic progress have been affected by the pandemic.
The idea for this new edible playground is to help children learn outside in all weather. It could even help to keep the school open this year as corona virus infections rise. We need funds to support the build.
Our local community have always been very supportive of Our Lady and St George Catholic Primary School and this is a great way to get involved this year. Any donations – however small – would mean a lot to the school, the children and their families.
About us: OLSG is a Catholic primary school in Walthamstow. We have over 400 pupils, aged from 3-11.
A lot of our pupils spent lockdown in small flats or houses with no outside space, affecting their physical and mental health. It will be great for them to be back at school, where there is plenty of room to run around and they will help to grow things.
