Parents want to revamp children’s playground
A GROUP of parents have made it their mission to raise enough money to give their children's school in Litherland a revamp.
A group of seven mums and dads decided to relaunch a Parent Teacher Association (PTA) at Hatton Hill Primary School in the hope of getting enough funds to carry out a refurbishment of the playground.
To help get the new group off to a positive start, they held a Summer Fair recently when pupils and parents were invited to take part in fun games and activities.
One of the more popular events was a Soak the Teacher game, which many pupils seemed more than happy to take part in!
Chair of the PTA, Kelly Johnston, said: “We want to bring some fun parent-led events, such as fairs, back into the school life. We understand that with the current budget cuts our school needs all the support we can give.
“Currently, renovating the playground is our main reason for fundraising. The current playground does not have any equipment to inspire the children’s play.
“We are hoping to raise money for some fun and educational paintings on the floor of the playground to develop social skills and play and possibly some bigger climbing equipment which would support the development of our children’s motor skills.
“Parents and children had requested we bring the Summer Fair back to the school, as one has not been held for many years.
“Local community groups and businesses were also included in the event and we had displays by gymnastic groups and football coaches.
“The most eagerly awaited game was the ‘Soak the Teacher’ game, which the children were eager to play!”
