A CASTLE Bromwich school is set to transform one if its ponds into a nature hub.
Thanks to a donation from developer MORRO Partnerships staff at Firs Primary School now have the equipment to help pupils learn more about the nature living within the water.
Among the items donated were pond liners, filters and pumps, which will all help to create an area where children can learn about this habitat and develop their learning.
The school plans to introduce frogs and newts to the environment, all of which seeing first hand can help the children understand how different species live in their own areas.
Derek Fance, headteacher at Firs Primary School, said: “We are so pleased that MORRO Partnerships have been able to help up with these items to help get our pond up and running again.
“The children are very excited to see the pond up and running – thank you to all involved.”
MORRO’s donation is one of many examples of the developer’s commitment to being better community and better environment makers, aligning with the company’s brand values in the areas it builds in, with the developer’s Stoney and Bayley Croft site near to the school.
Chris Timmins, managing director at MORRO Partnerships, said: “I’m really proud that we’ve been able to make the donation for such a worthwhile cause.
“For children to be exposed to nature from an early age is really important, and to be a part of helping to develop their learning feels incredibly rewarding.
“At MORRO, we pride ourselves on looking after the environment and our local communities, so to have supported Firs Primary School in this way is important to us.”
