A school's outdoor area has been ‘turbo charged’ thanks to help from a Huddersfield business.
Christ Church C E Academy at Deighton has opened an Environmental Science Area in wild woodland behind the school.
The fantastic facility has been boosted further thanks to the constructions of a BMX track.
The whole project has been completed thanks to funding and help from Cummins Turbo Technologies.
More than 50 workers from the Turnbridge based firm have put in hundreds of hours of effort to help construct the facility.
A community garden was the first part of the project, opened in 2011.
This was complimented by an outdoor amphitheatre the following year.
Now the woodland has been added as a safe environment for pupils to enjoy.
The next step is to erect an outside science classroom.
Mel Wade, Premises Manager at the school, led the project.
“We wanted to create an environmental science area and habitat for ‘mini beasts’,” he said.
“The children can now get in touch with the natural environment and learn more about the wildlife on their doorstep.
“The children have also built squirrel feeders and bird boxes, which we have erected on the trees.”
Mark McGovern, Product Manager, who coordinated the initiative for Cummins Turbo Technologies, said: “This project has taken more than 50 employees and 600 hours of work, over two years to complete.
“The staff had to use their skills and expertise to help create a safe woodland area for the children, which consisted of cleaning and fencing the woodland area, as well as laying 400 metres of gravel paths.
“Cummins provided funding for the BMX track.
“It is rewarding to be able to build a cleaner, healthier and safer environment to nurture and develop the children.”
