PUPILS from Burrowmoor School in March have come up with plans to improve the town's West End Park, as part of the school's geography week.
The youngsters visited the park before deciding they want to see more play equipment, an improved bandstand, and extra picnic facilities.
Year four teacher Charlotte Norman said: “We may send some of the children’s ideas to March Town Council for their consideration. The pupils were really enthusiastic about the project, and have made suggestions about how to improve the park for different age groups. They want to see more age appropriate play equipment and separate play areas.”
Also as part of geography week, year three pupils created a treasure map around school, and year six students made a study of the High Street.
Miss Norman added: “Geography week is part of a national initiative run by the Geographical Association, and has been a really successful project in our school.”
