Woodlands Academy receives funding from The Gregg’s Foundation
Woodlands Academy are thrilled to announce that they have received £2,000 from the Gregg’s Foundation towards their fantastic Woodlands Project.
The activities they are planning with the aid of the grant will be “traditional woodland crafts.” Students will be able to really get stuck in to these new activities including green wood working skills using pole lathes, making of woodland chairs, use of basic blacksmithing skills to make tools and equipment. These will then be used for the educational areas planned for the further development of othe woodland, benefitting current and future students at Woodlands Academy.
The activities will promote the working & management of a woodland area to teach the next generation the importance of our environment and to achieve the range of educational benefits that outdoor learning can offer students.
