As part of a significant play area improvement project implemented at Park Primary School,the School Council children have been involved with the stone carving of a series of stone tiles that will be located as a permanent feature on the stone walls within the playground.

Each child carved a stone tile 300mm square with a woodland image that they designed earlier in the week.

Using chisels and mallets,traditional stone carving tools and under the guidance of Michael Disley, a stone sculpture, the children created pieces of sculpture that will form a large mosaic displaying the playground.

This will be the final installation within the playground that is part of of a commission awarded to ‘Playscape Enginnering Ltd’ part of the Landscape Engineering Ltd Group.

The children had so much fun carving the stone as well as learning a new skill. Tony from Year 6 said ” This has been a brilliant experience”.

BBC Radio Lancashire spent the morning at school interviewing both staff and children. What a fantastic day it has been for our School Council Representatives!

I have had the pleasure of working at Park since I graduated from Chester Teacher Training College. Both my children attended Park Primary and have become successful in their careers. I love my role as Deputy Head teacher and especially enjoy having the opportunity to work in all classes. I am very proud to work at Park Primary and always take an interest in the careers of past pupils. My hobbies are walking, spending time with my friends and family.
