We are delighted to announce that the overall winners of the 2009-2010 Playground Partnerships Awards are Granby Junior School based up in Ilkeston, Derbyshire.
Both our Adult and Junior Judging Panels were unanimous in their decision to award this group the “top” prize. The portfolio was very well put together and contained some innovative ideas for a play space that is boring at best. 300 pupils squeeze into a fairly small space each day at this school and the facilities are going to be vastly improved now that the Project Team has won.
Keeping the secret from the children was really hard and we are extremely grateful that Lisa Shelton, the lead teacher, agreed to do so… we really wanted to tell the children face to face.
Rimini Hall, 11, was project co-ordinator, she said: “I can’t wait to see the end result, we all worked really hard and I was so surprised when we found out that we’d won.”
Well done you guys!
