Pupils at Haddenham St Mary's CE School now have a large and very impressive piece of play equipment to enjoy in the delightful rear grounds of the school.
The new play equipment was installed following a successful grant application supplemented by energetic and focused fundraising by the school's hard-working PTA.
School staff organised a grand opening on Friday 29th April, when the ribbon was cut and the youngest child in school had the joy of sliding down the slide first.
An excited group of children could hardly contain themselves as they waited their turn, while the Head Teacher, Karen Collect, took to the slide herself:
"Well, I had to check the slide was safe, obviously!" she said with a wink.
Photographs show staff and pupils champing at the bit, and a head teacher showing remarkable decorum as she dismounted the slide with the dextrous skills of an A-list celeb !
Our thanks to Alison Court, who kindly took the photographs. Click on any of the images to view an enlarged version.
