MURRAYFIELD Primary School celebrated the opening of its new play area which has been transformed with the help of the Prince's Trust.

The area was officially opened this week by headteacher Di Gooding with the helpers from the Prince's Trust. The children who will use the area were there to watch.

Janet Irvine, a nursery nurse at the school, said the transformation has been greatly welcomed by the school.

"Work started about two weeks ago after the trust had raised the money through sponsorship. What they have done is marvellous, they have transformed the garden which will be used by the nursery and reception children.

"They have made the garden more exciting for the children with a new sandpit and wonderful paintings on the walls, including one depicting the seaside to go with the renovated boat which also sits in the garden.

"They have made it a safe, secure and stimulating environment. They also provided play equipment and many local companies including the Co-op and Index donated things. We are really grateful for all they have done and the children love it," she said.
