Rainbow sambas, bell chimes, rain wheel and a wheelchair roundabout are just some of the outdoor musical instruments which will be enjoyed by pupils in a Chadwell Heath school.
Newbridge School, in Gresham Drive, began the academic year by receiving a donation of over £4,000 from Nationwide Building Society in Barkingside to purchase the specialist equipment.
“This contribution will allow the children to develop important skills to enable them to self-occupy and interact with their peers and staff with this multi-sensory equipment,” deputy headteacher Tracy Edmonston said.
“It will give them the opportunity to expand their environmental learning through play and socialisation and of course will be lots of fun!”
Newbridge School PFA Committee member Harvey Sharpe, who completed the successful application, said he was “overwhelmed and delighted by the generosity” of the building society.
