|The new outdoor classroom has been supported by over 400 hours of work by young offenders|
Activities with us serve as community service, and young people have so far left green footprints across Peterborough – including creating wildlife gardens in school grounds, creating and restoring ponds, building wildlife homes, growing plants and constructing an outdoor classroom at Froglife’s wildlife-friendly allotment.
“Park Lane’s outdoor classroom has been a fantastic project to support,” said James McAdie, who runs FACT - Froglife’s work with young offenders. “It has given the young people I work with the chance to create a wildlife garden from start to finish, learning new skills and giving something back by making an area that will be used and loved by generations of local schoolchildren.”
The Park Lane Primary School will be showing off their new outdoor classroom at an open day on Friday the 7th of June, with teachers and pupils making the most of their newly revamped outdoor space.
