Playing develops a child both mentally and physically and it’s for this reason that children’s play area should be safe and continually catered for.
A survey was made on Bwanika School and Canon Apollo demo play areas and the following were the findings.
Canon Apollo Demo had a well maintained playground with an up to date boys football pitch.
The special needs children had no ramp to help them access their class rooms easily.
The special needs children’s play area was quite lacking in playing materials.
The girls did not have a net ball pitch but were doing a lot of skipping and hide and seek Bwanika had neither a football nor a netball pitch.
The playground was not leveled at all owing to the rocky land the school is built on
The girls also do a lot of skipping and hide and seek games.
Considering the budget available, it was decided that a girl’s net ball pitch be made in Bwanika primary school and one ramp on the main entry be constructed for special needs easy accessibility to classroom.
Both the stake holders and the parents of the schools appreciated the good work done by CFSU and its partners.
