A NORTHALLERTON optician has donated £200 to a local primary school to help provide new learning resources.
The money from Specsavers has gone towards outdoor musical instruments which will help children at Applegarth Primary School to understand mathematical concepts.
Head teacher Alison Goodwin said: “On behalf of the staff and pupils at Applegarth, I’d like to say a big thank you to Specsavers in Northallerton.
“As well as the Numicon resources, we are spending the money donated on a multicultural chest, which will consist of outside musical instruments.
“I’m sure the children will be delighted with the basket of ankle rattles, rain sticks, finger cymbals, maracas and goongroos, which are some of the things inside the chest.”
She added: “Children in year six have recently made a recycled musical structure in the playground and the instruments in the multicultural chest will be a perfect addition.
“Our children love music and these new instruments will further enrich the curriculum throughout the whole school.’
