Ambergate Sports College has been awarded a £10,000 grant from The National Lottery Awards for All Scheme.
This great news means that an installation of outdoor exercise equipment can now begin and intern engage the children more at playtimes.
We are lucky at Ambergate Sports College, we have a large playground space however equipment to engage pupils in is a bit sparse. At Ambergate we promote healthy living constantly and want to offer our pupils more fun ways to keep fit.
We are installing a double health walker, double slalom skier, horse rider, sky stepper, a rower and Tai Chi discs. To complete the area we are installing rubber mulch safety surfacing.
James Ellis, Headteacher, said, “We would like to say a huge thank you to the Lottery for their significant donation that will allow us to install external gym equipment. This is going to give the children a fantastic opportunity to be regularly active throughout the day, heightening the importance of living a healthy life style.”
