The young students at Brading CE Primary School can now brag that they have the only known outdoor gymnasium at a school on the Island, thanks to the efforts of Irene Burkett of Brading Resident’s Action Group (BRAG).
Irene worked with teacher Shelly Bailey to secure an ‘Awards for All’ grant 0f £9000 to pay for the gym, comprising tai chi spinners, a seated leg press, double air walker and air skier.
The gym was officially opened by Irene at the school’s assembly on Friday 8th May.
“I am delighted that BRAG has been able to contribute to the well-being of our town’s youngsters by securing this grant to provide the equipment.
“I hope that the children will enjoy using it as well as the benefits of exercise in the open air that it will provide”.
