As part of a pioneering playground development scheme, Robert Kett Primary School in Norfolk had an innovative idea to turn an unused double-decker bus into an outside library for the pupils.
After sourcing the right vehicle, they were faced with adventurous plans to create shelving for the books, a story-teller’s chair and seating areas for the children. Fortunately, no task is too big (or too small!) for Norbord’s CaberWood MDF and Jewson Cringleford was able to supply sixteen sheets of the strong, high quality material to enable the project to become a reality.
Some months on and the library has proven very popular with the pupils at Robert Kett. School Business Manager, Karen Hurst, said
“The bus has given the quieter children somewhere to escape the busy playground during break times; they can listen to stories or select a book to read. Recently, the children enjoyed a Poets’ Day with a visit from the well-known children’s author, Pippa Goodhart.”
