St Mary’s Primary School have been awarded a cash windfall, money they say they will be used to improve their outdoor area.
The school on Eden Road in Beverley was awarded the money by the Tesco in Beverley. In all, they received £2,000 as a result of finishing first in the supermarket’s Bags of Help incentive.
Elizabeth Hart, Assistant Headteacher, said;
“On behalf of all of us at St Mary’s CE Primary School, we would like to thank Tesco and all the kind customers that voted for our project.”
“The money will be used to help us develop our outdoor provision here at St Mary’s. Also, the outdoor area for the Foundation Stage will be transformed in the coming months.”
“This will enable the children to take part in a whole range of engaging outdoor learning activities.”
“Again we would like to say a huge thank you to everyone who supported our project through voting for us in Tesco. We are sure that the project will bring great benefits to our community.”
St Mary’s Primary School Have Strong Environmental Values
St Mary’s School joins a whole list of local schools, community groups and also sports clubs who have benefited.
It is also somewhat fitting that they have been granted money from an incentive that aims to reduce plastic waste.
In recent months the school has been running a number of schemes that focus on the environment and recycling.
These include producing their own water bottles while they also collected used batteries from the community as a part of a national scheme.
