Secret Garden playground

July 25, 2016

This Secret Garden has been designed to be a more interactive and challenging playground than a standard school playground.  

Play has a vital role in children’s social and emotional development and the provision of quality outdoor play opportunities form an integral part of a good learning environment.

The playground allows children to discover, to test ideas and theories.  It has been designed so they can explore texture and shape, using naturally found items, through interactive play.

Each class visited the playground with their teacher and talked about the importance of turn-taking, sharing and interaction with others.

The playground would not have been possible without the hard work of the St Cecilia’s Parent Network group.
