Primary school lessons for ALN children will be great outdoors thanks to wildlife donation

LESSONS at a primary school will be great outdoors thanks to a generous donation from Coleg Cambria.

The college donated bat houses, birdboxes, and mud kitchens to Ysgol Rhosymedre, near Wrexham.

The equipment was built by Entry to Construction learners at Cambria’s Bersham Road site and will be used by Reception pupils and children with additional learning needs (ALN).

Lecturer in Foundation Construction Amy Rowlands made the presentation along with colleague Edd Young and students Joe Dempsey and Zac Sprason-Jones.

“Every year we make outdoor learning equipment and items such as bat houses and birdboxes, which inspire conservation, and give them to different schools in the area,” said Amy.

“This year we chose Rhosymedre as my son attended the ALN unit there, it’s a fantastic school so we wanted to give something back.

“They were delighted to receive the donation, and we were only too pleased to help.”

She added: “The entry learners at Bersham designed, built and painted everything, which has been a great experience for them, giving back to their local community and enhancing their skills – they did an amazing job.”
