Mayor Visits Reception's New Playground


 On 7th December, the Mayor of Greenwich (Councillor Peter Brooks) officially opened the new extended Reception playground at Cherry Orchard Primary School.

Parents gave up their time over two weekends to clear the old pond and fill it in with soil kindly donated to the school by local businesses.

On the day, one parent said: “It’s amazing to see the children’s faces when they ran to play in the new area, and know that I worked hard to make it happen.” Head teacher Maria Hill is delighted with the outcome.  “The support from our families has made this outdoor learning space possible and having the Mayor here shows the families how valued their input has been,” she said. “They really have made a huge difference to the education of our Cherry Orchard children.”
