Special needs school in Harrow completes sponsored walk to raise funds for state-of-the-art equipment

Woodlands Special Needs School in Edgware, in partnership with Park High School, have shared the news of their success of a recent sponsored walk at Chandos Park.

The purpose of the event was to raise money for a new, high-tech interactive floor projector. This tool will improve learning for the school’s students.

On Wednesday, May 1st, students, staff, and parents from Woodlands Special Needs School teamed up with a spirited group of students from Park High School. Together, they walked multiple circuits around Chandos Park, showing their support for this important cause.

The event was a great success. Everyone worked together to complete 30 circuits of the park. Their hard work and enthusiasm, along with the generous donations from sponsors, helped achieve the fundraising goal.

“The overwhelming success of the sponsored walk is a testament to the strong sense of community and shared purpose that defines Woodlands Special Needs School and Park High School,” said Caroline Day-Lewis, Headteacher of Woodlands Special Needs School. “We are deeply grateful to all participants, sponsors, and donors for their unwavering support in our endeavor to provide our students with the best possible learning environment.”

The funds raised through the sponsored walk will be used to purchase a sensory interactive floor projector, a valuable tool that will revolutionise sensory learning experiences for students at Woodlands Special Needs School.

The projector will create interactive floor displays that stimulate visual and tactile senses, fostering engagement, exploration, and learning.

“We are thrilled to have been part of this meaningful initiative,” said Luke Clarke, Head of 6th Form at Park High School. “Collaborating with Woodlands Special Needs School has been an enriching experience for our students, highlighting the importance of inclusivity and community involvement.”
