Reading Rocks at Tyneview Primary School
Monday, July 19 2021
The Children's Foundation is committed to improving the health and well-being of children and young people in the North East through a variety of schemes, including Reading Rocks at Tyneview Primary School.
The ‘Reading Rocks Shed’ – named by the students at the Newcastle school – is an engaging, creative space where small groups can be helped with their reading to catch-up following Covid-19.
Rainton Construction provided support to get this facility over the line, the site required a drainage channel to allow surface water to drain to keep the shed watertight. We also undertook extra pointing work to ensuring everything was ready on time for the children.
As fundraising activities have been affected by the pandemic, MGL Group also donated a raffle prize for the charity’s Big Birthday Bowl event to help raise much needed funds.
