Margaret Wix Primary School, St Albans
Colour and sound for KS2 at Margaret Wix
Head Teacher at Margaret Wix Primary School, Mr Johnston, was looking for something colourful, durable and offering increased challenges for his Key Stage 2 children. HAGS had previously completed two successful projects for the school, and so were invited to attend a consultation along with the children. The children wanted to bring music and sound into the area and the school had a preference for steel equipment, rather than timber.
HAGS provided the UniPlay Lumba, in grey and red, with yellow panels, brightening up the playground but in keeping with the school colours. The UniPlay Lumba offers a multitude of options including climbing, crawling and traversing increasing in difficulty, to challenge a range of ages. A variety of musical instruments have been installed in a circle around the outside of the multiplay unit, to meet the children’s needs for mixing sound and physical play together. Including 100% recycled plastic posts, the children chose Rain Wheel, Tongue Drum, Chimes, and Bongos from our Eco-Music range. Eye-catching Rainbow Samba drums produce lots of musical energy and encourage team work. The area is completed with a cost effective and natural rubber mulch safety surface.
Mr Johnston is delighted with the result and told us “The Lumba is used every day. The children value their time there using all aspects, and I just love to see them enjoying it!”
