On Wednesday 15th May, students from our Rising Futures programme at Marshalls Park Academy visited Eastbrookend Country Park for their Play Your Part day.
Under the guidance of Jerome, Ranger at Eastbrookend Country Park, the students got stuck in with laying a new path in the wooded area of the park.
This involved shovelling, transporting, laying and flattening mulch to create a more accessible walk way through the trees. The students worked in teams and did a fantastic job over the course of the morning!
The finished path!
After a well-deserved lunch break, Jerome took the students on a tour of the park, providing plenty of informative commentary on all the different wildlife and plant life that the park provides a home for.
Using this information, the students then worked in teams to complete the Play Your Part day challenge; a group presentation on Protecting our local green spaces for the future.
It was an excellent day and a great opportunity for our Rising Futures students to develop their Yes Futures talents in a new environment.
Thank you to Jerome and his team at Eastbrookend Country Park for hosting us!
