Riverside School wants to weatherproof play areas

November 9, 2022

Riverside School are fundraising for new additions to their school buildings and play areas.

The school which caters to those with special needs and/or disabilities (SEND), wishes to make their outdoor areas usable for pupils in all weather conditions. With harsh winter weather fast approaching, the school requires two canopies on its classrooms to shield students from rain and bright sunlight, and a fenced outdoor area with a durable, porous rubber crumb surface. The additions to the new school buildings would mean students of all ages could take part in enrichment activities without stress. To help with raising money for this project, the school are encouraging local people, organisations and businesses to get involved by organising a fundraising event or making a kind donation.

Assistant head teacher, Martin Cox, said: “Help from the Goole Times readers is always welcome! They have come up with the goods before and I’m sure will have some great ideas on how we might raise the money we need.”
