Portreath Surf Life Savers Nippers’ Success

Portreath Surf Lifesavers

Portreath Surf Life Saving Club has a well-deserved, enviable reputation for its admirable work in educating young people in valuable, life-saving and beach-safety skills. Its talented coaches support children on their pathway to becoming confident lifesavers, with many of the Nippers going on to become successful youth lifesavers and often even competing for Team GB or becoming Life Guards for the RNLI. Children can join the club and get involved in learning about beach safety through fun activities, by becoming Sand-hoppers from age 6 and going on to enter Surf Life Saving competitions when they are ready from age 8.

At the beginning of March, we were proud to sponsor the Nippers at Portreath Life Saving Club by providing all 130 Nippers and their dedicated coaches with smart team T-shirts to support them during their competitions. Since then, the enthusiastic Nippers have gone on to prove that they are just as effective in the still waters of the pool as in the open ocean, by competing successfully in the Nipper National Pool Competition in Cardiff. This national competition, set in a stunning 50-metre pool, consisted of a variety of very challenging events such as the Flipper Race, Manikin Carry and Board Rescue and Relays.

Make your Children Smile with an Inclusive Playground

Make your Children Smile with an Inclusive Playground

Imagine how it feels to be only able to watch other children play? For some children, playtime can be a lonely time when they feel isolated and unable to participate in games and use the equipment that other children take for granted. Other children may be able to let off steam and express themselves easier in an outdoor environment. All children love to be independent.

At Schoolscapes we believe that playtime can be inclusive and provide fun and happy memories for everyone. Discover our wide range of sensory and specialist equipment that can engage and inspire children of every age and all abilities. We believe that there should be something for everyone in every outdoor play area.

MUGA - Create Future Sports Stars!

Global sporting events such as the World Cup and Wimbledon always hope to inspire the young sportsmen and women of the future. Success in a sport comes through practice and dedication, as well as through talent.  But where would the top sports stars be today if they had never had the chance to even try their sport?  Here at Schoolscapes, we believe that all children should have the chance to engage in different sports, so they can discover which they enjoy, which they are good at and which they’d like to focus on into the future.

How to Implement STEM into Your Playground

Tiered Amphitheatre Seating

Children all learn in different ways. While there are those who benefit more from learning inside the classroom, others may prefer the more hands-on approach. Learning through play can be a very effective method of teaching, giving children the chance to build knowledge through something they enjoy doing. You can easily integrate the four key disciplines of STEM education into your playground for both play times and outdoor teaching.
