Shelters help pupils stay dry between lessons

TWO wet weather shelters have been installed at Gillotts School in Henley

TWO wet weather shelters have been installed at Gillotts School in Henley.

One is outside the school canteen and the other at a seating area nearby. They cost £25,000, which was raised by the parents? association.

The project began in 2012 when pupils in Morrigan House asked for shelters for when it was raining during breaks and at lunchtime.

They presented their idea to the association with the slogan, ?We don?t learn well if we are wet?.

Headteacher Catharine Darnton said: ?The shelters look fantastic. The first day one of them went up it was wet and all the students were immediately able to wait for their food in the dry.

?I think they enhance the look of the building and are a very valuable addition for the students. Thank you to the parents? association for everything it has done.? Ailsa Robinson, who chairs the association, added: ?Thank you very much to all the parents who contributed to this fantastic sum. We are really proud of what we have achieved but the fund-raising goes on.?

The shelters were built by A&S Landscapes.
