FOREST SCHOOL: Mayor opens up new area for primary school in Stanmore

 Published on: 2nd July 2022   |   By: Bryn Holmes   |   Category: Uncategorized

A new ‘forest school’ area at a primary school in Stanmore has recently been opened by Mayor of Harrow, Councillor Janet Mote.

The Mayor attended the special red ribbon cutting ceremony at Avanti House Primary School, with staff, parents and pupils also present, as well as representative from the nearby Hindu Iskcon Temple, Vaisnava Das.

The project was put forward and sponsored by two parents at the school, Sam and Rajvi Patel, who wanted to offer the schoolchildren the opportunity to play and learn in the open air, something which is widely recognised as having a positive effect on a child’s wellbeing.

Sam said: “We decided to sponsor and help build this project to give young children the opportunity to have hands-on learning experiences in a natural environment

surrounded by trees and open space,”

Cllr Mote said: “I was delighted to open the Forest School at the Avanti House School with my Mayoress, it is amazing and will help and extend the children’s learning.

Having taught at the previous school on the site Peterborough & St Margaret’s, I was thrilled to see how the Avanti School has flourished on the site with love and respect for all.”
