The three newly developed outdoor areas consist of features such as; a sand pit, sensory experience structures, a bike track with appropriate signposting, a trampoline, a fixed water and sand activity area, a spinning swing, various low climbing equipment and other fixed climbing equipment, all with appropriate soft fall.

The outdoor classroom centres will be shared with students from other schools who will be invited to spend time with the Crescent School students on a regular basis.

Trustee, John Reynolds was pleased to perform the official opening of the newly constructed outdoor area at the School’s end of year celebration in December 2016. Edwina Turner, principal of The Crescent School said, “the students have benefitted greatly through the new playground areas. Students are now able to access sensory equipment and explore different sounds and movements which were previously unavailable.”

The Veolia Mulwaree Trust is very proud to support The Crescent School with the development of the outdoor areas and looks forward to many years of fun and learning for the students and school community.
