Description

We are the parent council for Ysgol Glan Morfa, a small welsh language primary school established in Cardiff in 2005. We are currently located on the site of a neighbouring school but due to the success and increase in demand for the school we will be moving to our very own, shiny new site in Summer 2018!

Over the past 10 years the parent council has worked really hard to provide an inspiring and engaging playground for the children. Unfortunately we cannot take the existing equipment with us so we have an exciting opportunity to develop a new playground/outdoor classroom for the children!

We are currently in the process of raising £16,000.00 to develop the new playground, and we would like the support of Aviva for line markings on our new ground e.g. hopscotch, number games, twister - please see our video for our current interactive ground markings and the fun the children have with them! We would also like your support to purchase picnic benches for the playground and each exterior classroom area, which would have multiple uses of playing and working outdoors.

Our school will be expanding from over 200 children to 500 over the course of the next few years, aged from 3-11 years. Our children come from an urban and highly populated inner city suburb where outdoor space is limited and so our playground and facilities are vital to the children's physical and mental well-being.

We need safe play equipment to:
-Boost children's self esteem
-Encourage physical activity
-Instigate their own games
-Develop social skills

Many thanks,
Ysgol Glan Morfa parent council

Moment of Pride

We are proud to be involved with fundraising for the school's new playground, as it is vital for helping the pupils settle into their new surroundings, as well as providing a warm welcome to new pupils. We are also immensely proud of our volunteers who work hard at organising events and fundraising.
