DELIGHTED pupils of The Rofft Primary School were jumping for joy when they heard their playground is to receive a £4,000 facelift.
The transformation of the Marford school's playground comes as part of the Supergrounds programme, launched in September by NatWest, managed by charity Learning Through Landscapes in partnership with Groundwork UK.
Supergrounds is a £3m project that will improve 450 primary school playgrounds over three years, and The Rofft is one of the first.
Supergrounds was developed by NatWest to strengthen the ties between bank staff and communities, with its staff nominating schools they are involved with.
The Rofft Primary School became involved with the scheme through Julie Longson from NatWest's Premium Office in Wrexham.
Julie said: 'As a parent, I know how difficult it is for schools to raise funds and this scheme seemed an ideal way for us to improve the school grounds to help the children develop.'
Headteacher Geraint Morris said: 'For many children who do not have access to a garden or live near a park, school grounds are probably one of the few areas that they can run around in safety. The project will enable us to extend the curriculum outdoors in a bright, stimulating and exciting environment.'
