Pupils at the leading Wilson Stuart School, which provides educational facilities for those with special needs, located in Perry Common, Erdington, in the North of Birmingham, have revelled in a brand new interactive water activity facility funded by Warwickshire Freemasons. The facility, which was purpose built by specialist equipment supplier Playforce, encourages the students to combine recreational use with educational problem solving in an enjoyable and entirely safe environment.
As a thank you for the donation, the school’s Deputy Head Teacher, Simon Harris kindly hosted the Provincial Charity Steward, W Bro John Hayward and the Provincial Communications Officer, W Bro Peter Wellings on a guided tour of the school. This included seeing the new water activity in action within the school’s comprehensive outdoor activity area and proved to be a very moving and rewarding experience.
The opportunity to assist the school was discovered via the Lodge of Faith and Hope 4772, whose members have for several years supported the school’s Cub unit.
Simon also very kindly sent details to the local newspaper, resulting in a splendid article which can be seen here, reproduced by kind permission of the Sutton Coldfield Observer.
