A building firm has lent its support to Bishopton Primary School with a cash donation to create a vibrant outdoor space for pupils to enjoy.
Housebuilders Stewart Milne Homes has pledged £1,000 to Bishopton Primary Parent Council to aid the school’s plans to regenerate the external area within the school grounds to create an encouraging place for outdoor learning and natural play.

Kevin Moreland, marketing manager for Stewart Milne Homes visited the Renfrewshire school where he was given a tour of the site and learned about the exciting plans that will transform the space into a valuable community resource.
The vision for the new space includes a five-a-side grass pitch with adequate drainage to allow year-round use and an all-weather running track around the perimeter. The facilities aim to promote healthy lifestyles among the children and the wider community who will enjoy access out with school hours.
A garden area will be created and maintained by the children through class time and extracurricular activities, including a well-attended gardening club and will help children learn to grow and reap fruits and vegetables, which can in turn be used to help develop basic life skills and encourage healthy eating.
An outdoor seating area will also be incorporated which can be used as a classroom when weather permits or simply for children to enjoy time outside with educational and play equipment developed for all ages.
