ENTERPRISING Years 5 and 6 pupils from St George’s Central Primary School in Tyldesley have completed a topic looking at making a difference to their local area.
It involved the children’s researching a local amenity and looking at ways that it could be improved.
Their chosen location was Astley Park in Tyldesley.
The children interviewed local residents and conducted litter, traffic and crime surveys.
From the research they then created plans for the park based on their findings and what they felt would benefit the local area in a sustainable way.
The project culminated in a presentation of their plans to chairman of the Pelican Centre, Trevor Barton, Grow for Giving Director, Pamela Jones Brown and Ian Jackson, Director of Cadence Community Hub, who were all received VIP invitations to visit the school.
Some of the children also presented their work at Astley Park during a Tyldesley Town Partnership fun day.
