Selco donates materials to Leeds Shakespeare Primary School and Nursery

Pupils at a Leeds primary school are ready to further embrace the great outdoors thanks to a donation from our Leeds Roundhay branch.

Shakespeare Primary School and Nursery, which has around 700 pupils and is based on Lincoln Road, have been donated materials including decking and timber which will allow the youngsters to embark on den building sessions.

Julian Gorton, headteacher of Shakespeare Primary School, said: “Outdoor learning is a huge part of the school ethos and philosophy and incorporated into our engaging curriculum wherever we can.

“Since we moved to this location five years ago, we have always looked for opportunities to extend our outdoor learning provision so we are hugely grateful for Selco’s donation of materials which is going to enable us to deliver the den building area we have long since craved.

“As we are situated relatively centrally to the city centre in Leeds, there aren’t a huge amount of opportunities for the pupils to engage in woodland den-building type activities outside of school so we are delighted to provide them with the opportunity thanks to Selco.”

Chris Lowry, branch manager of our Leeds Roundhay branch, said: “We hope the materials we have donated will help further enhance the learning opportunities for the pupils of Shakespeare School.

“Here at Selco, we are committed to supporting the communities in which we operate and we were delighted to be able to support such a large primary school.

“We hope there are many hours of education and enjoyment spent by the pupils in the new den building area.”
