A big thank you to the parents who have helped with Joes Playground and Jubilee Garden. It has transformed into a lovely, colourful area for the children to enjoy. We just need to complete the turrets of the slide when we have a Saturday clear of rain. We have used quite a lot of our fundraising money on putting new bark down in the playground. We successfully applied for the Tesco Bags of Help grant which we have put towards the outside area and we also purchased the magnetic whiteboard that can be seen round the side of the school.
The playground is named after a former pupil of Leeds and Broomfield, Joe who passed away in 1997, aged 7. The Folsa group at the time fundraised to build the playground in Joe’s memory. We were joined by Joe’s mum and brother recently to mark what have been Joes 30th Birthday. Joe’s mum, Jackie was extremely grateful to see the playground had been painted so colourfully and the children enjoying the play area, while continuing Joe’s memory.
