Students' School Playground Project

Tom Daggers and Alican Gokmen, now year 3 students on the BA course, have been involved since early in year 2 on a project with St Pauls C of E Primary School in Withington to redesign the playground. The students became aware that the school was unhappy with the existing playground layout and volunteered to give some ideas. The students carried out workshops with pupils and talked to teachers to develop their plans. An initially suspicious PTA and governors were won round by the students willingness to listen and respond and by their innovative ideas. The designs have been adopted in full and will be implemented in a phased programme over the next 3 years. Tom and Ali will remain involved in developing detailed designs as the project moves into the next phases.
