Formal Opening of New Canopy at High Beeches School

The Harpenden Trust Community Fund supported a project at High Beeches School, to improve the shade in the playground by building canopies for the rear of the classrooms.  

For Steve Pryor, Chair of the Community Fund, it was a great pleasure to attend the recent formal opening of the new outside canopy at the School, which has clearly added significant value as described by Stephanie Shewbridge, Deputy Headteacher, "Thanks to the generous donation from the Harpenden Trust, we were able to fit a third canopy in our school grounds. These are already used widely with our pupils across the school, both at playtimes and for lessons. They are a huge success and a valuable resource, particularly during these difficult and different times. As budgets are stretched, we are reliant on help from charitable trusts and are so grateful to the Harpenden Trust for their support."
