The ribbon was cut at the opening by the Mayor, Cllr Olu Babatola, on Friday 21 April.

Members of the school council asked for some new equipment to help them to keep fit while having fun and were given a say in what machinery was chosen.

Fitness equipment installed

A health walker, slalom skier, horse skier, rower, sky stepper and an arm and pedal bike have all been installed following a grant from the Big Lottery Fund.

The Greenwich school also raised £10,000 to create a trim trail - a range of physical challenges including a rolling log and balance beam - plus a solar stopwatch so that pupils can race against the clock.

'Help the pupils incorporate exercise into their routine'

Mayor Babatola said: "I was delighted to officially open the fitness equipment and trim trail and see how excited the children are about keeping active.

"I am sure that they will help the pupils easily incorporate exercise into their daily routines and form good habits as they grow older."

'Make keeping fit fun'

Headteacher Maria Hill said: "We believe that physical activity is a key part of education so I am pleased that we now have some great equipment which will make keeping fit fun.

"It was great to have the Mayor attend the official opening to help show how much the wider community values this addition to our school."
