We hope to improve our school grounds as the current pandemic has placed an emphasis on the need for increased outdoor learning & play.

New stretch target

The current pandemic has placed a real emphasis on getting our children learning and playing outdoors as much as possible. We could really improve our school playgrounds and learning facilities outdoors with any extra funding we receive, specific areas we hope to improve are the wildlife garden, timber trail and picnic areas.


Hello, we are the Parent Council at Mosspark Primary School, Glasgow, and we are here to ask for help to make our playground better! When Scotland went into lockdown our parent council were unable to carry on with the usual fundraising events, and with restrictions still in place on the amount of people being allowed to gather indoors/outdoors we have had to rethink all our normal activities that would generate much needed school funds at this time of year e.g School Halloween party, Quiz night and Christmas Fayre to name a few. We are looking at ways to host school events online however this project is our chance to meet our target goal quickly so our children can benefit sooner.

At Mosspark Primary we always encourage our children to be healthy and active, to engage them in high quality learning experiences and to have a positive attitude to the environment. The current pandemic has placed a greater emphasis on the need for us to be learning, playing and staying active outdoors therefore we are hoping to make changes as quickly as possible.

Help us to improve our outdoor spaces.

We would love to repair our timber trail, this is an area that most of our younger children enjoy on a daily basis, it is in need of urgent repair to make it safe again and is closed off at the moment. The children really miss it!

See our Timber trail below, much of the timber is split and damaged and will need replaced or treated before the children can use it again.

Tidy up and improve our Wildlife garden

Another area we are hoping to improve is our wildlife garden, it is a great learning space but we would love to add more flora and be able to keep it regularly maintained. We do have a few volunteers to help from time to time but it really needs regular maintenance from a local gardener to keep it looking good.

Eating packed lunches outdoors

More of our children are now eating their packed lunches outdoors, we have two picnic tables at present and would like to add a few more.

Edited to add- 

We appreciate all our supporters and would like to say 'Thank you!' to each one of you that has helped us get to where we are right now.

Every single 'share' , penny and pound helps us to get that little bit closer to our target goal. 

Our school always aims to work together to be the best we can be, this project is an example of how we can all work together to do just that. 

So, thanks again! 

From,

Mosspark Primary Parent Council
