Blaenavon students enjoy new outdoor learning forest shelter


CHILDREN at a school in Blaenavon now have a new outdoor learning area, with help from a local construction dealer and Melin Homes.

Blaenavon Heritage VC Primary School has a brand new shelter for the Forest School outdoor learning area.

The area offers a variety of activities including building dens, hunting minibetes, and identifying flora and fauna, with hands-on learning being a key part of the school’s philosophy.


But, with Welsh weather forever unpredictable, an outdoor shelter was just what the school needed.

The school worked with Melin Homes on the project, while Robert Price Builders’ Merchants donated materials for the shelter.

“We were delighted to support this local community effort by donating a range of materials for the project,” said Molly Pike, Director of Marketing at Robert Price.

“It will be great to see how the shelter and the new outdoor learning area will be used for years to come.

Nikki Westwood, of Blaenavon Heritage VC Elementary School, said the new shelter will help students get the most out of outdoor learning.

“The team of volunteers have built a fantastic outdoor space, bringing the students even closer to nature and allowing them to get the most out of outdoor learning,” she said.

“We would like to say a big thank you to Robert Price and Melin Homes for all of their help.

“This shelter allows our Forest School to flourish fully, allowing students to reap a multitude of rewarding benefits.”
