A SHELTER has been installed at a school after a campaign by pupils.

Members of Stamford Queen Eleanor School’s student council requested a covered area for outdoor lessons and after a year-long process the canopy has finally been installed.

Headteacher Wendy Hamilton said: “The student council has been asking for an area like this for some time and it is great that we have been able to meet their wishes.

“The area will be used as an outdoor classroom during lesson time and as a covered eating area at break and lunch times. It shows how important the council is in developing ideas to improve their school environment”

Pupils thanked the team from Cummins Generator Technologies who came to the school in the summer to prepare an area of unused ground near to the garden and to lay a new paved area.

The canopy itself was installed in September, with the furniture following. The pupils also thanked the Queen Eleanor Association which donated money towards the furniture.
