Celebration as playground at Exeter school reopens
THE playground at a city school has been transformed after several months of hard work.
Majority-funded by he Friends of Exeter Cathedral School, the project has seen a complete redevelopment of the school's play area.
Headmaster Stephen Yeo said: "During the summer holidays the school playground resembled a building site and throughout the first two weeks I think I can say it was somewhat like DIY SOS – on a very large scale.
"More than 100 tonnes of rubble was removed preparing the way for a new surface to be laid at the end of the holiday. New walls were built and slate seating was installed into the playground. Flood lighting replaced the old playground lights; providing a safe environment for the children on darker evenings. The project was instigated, actioned and majority-funded by the Friends of Exeter Cathedral School with initial plans and ideas drawn up the senior pupils themselves as part of their design and technology work."

To celebrate the completion of the first phase of the redevelopment, parents, children from the nursery to year eight, staff and governors attended an opening celebration.
Mr Yeo added: "The Dean of Exeter Cathedral and chair of the governors, The Very Reverend Jonathan Draper, together with Tracy Frankpitt, former chairman of the Parents' Association, planted two trees with more than a few enthusiastic children helpers. Cards, written by the children, were added to memory boxes and buried under each tree to provide a snapshot for future generations of this special day ."
