Sandboxes for Sheuchan Primary

ON THEIR return to school, youngsters at Sheuchan Primary School, Stranraer, were delighted to find two large sandboxes in the playground.

These were designed and built by Dick's Hill Furniture Project workers.

The boxes were filled with sand, gravel and pebbles to provide different textures to stimulate sensory awareness. An assortment of tools was provided to encourage the children to engage in different types of physical activities, building muscle tone an promoting general fitness.

The project was funded by a grant from Wigtown West Area Committee and is part of ongoing work to improve the school grounds.

The youngsters did not take long to get involved in the experience - and enjoy themselves into the bargain.
