In May, London Irish and England 7's Rugby Player Tom Guest officially launched Manor Green School’s first ever interactive CardioWalls on behalf of The Wooden Spoon charity and the Shanly Foundation.
The Wooden Spoon is a rugby charity that supports disabled and disadvantaged children. It is one of the country’s largest funders of respite and medical treatment centres, sensory rooms, specialist playgrounds, sports activity areas and community-based programmes in the UK. It was their contribution – along with a generous donation from the Shandy Foundation - that enabled Manor Green School to buy the CardioWalls.
The students took part in an amazing demonstration of the wide-ranging benefits of using the CardioWall. In a highly engaging session with students and adults taking part in a range of interactive, dynamic and fun-for-all games, Ania Hildrey, Headteacher, said: “It is a joy to see learning coming to life and our students getting so much out of this great resource. I would like to extend our warmest thanks to Wooden Spoon and the Shanly Foundation for their kind generosity and to thank our VIP guests, including Tom Guest for being part of today; this is a fantastic resource that will support the development of all our young people for many years to come.”
Manor Green School installed the two CardioWalls in their sports hall. The pupils with a wide range of needs and abilities are already using them with great success. The CardioWall is highly versatile and will be used to develop Manor Green School students’ fitness, motivation, confidence and independence in physical and cognitive skills.
