Princebuild lends a hand at Medeshamstede Academy

August 30, 2019

Princebuild helped to bring new life to the eco area at the school by providing a mini digger and driver to remove decaying plant life from the two pond areas.

Medeshamstede Academy provides pupils aged 4-16 who have been diagnosed with autistic spectrum conditions with a calm, safe and supportive environment in which they can thrive. A part of this provision is a Forest School which provides opportunities to achieve and develop confidence and self-esteem through hands-on learning experiences in a natural environment.

The school approached Princebuild to help with rejuvenating the small nature reserve area as the the pond areas had become over grown and were not safe or accessible for the pupils to enjoy.

One pond area was cleared of old plant life completely to allow the area to be rebuilt with decking and viewing areas, whilst the other smaller pond was partially cleared to allow light into the area and a smaller viewing area to be created.

The school is working really hard to provide a great outdoor environment for its pupils and Princebuild were happy to be able to help them on their way to completing the outdoor learning area.
