Lawley Village Primary Academy gets a little egg-stra help from local housebuilders!
Children at Lawley Village Primary Academy have been enjoying some hands-on learning thanks to an egg-citing donation by local housebuilders.
Four chickens - Snowdrop, Bluebell, Rosie and Daisy - are the newest members of the school community, and were supplied by Lawley Village Developer Group, which also donated and built a brand new hen house and run in the grounds.
The developers have also provided a hutch for the school's two new guinea pigs Pickle and Pepper.
Laura Hopley, Headteacher at Lawley Village Primary Academy, says: "We're really grateful to Lawley Village Developer Group for these fantastic donations.
"The children are really enjoying the experience of looking after and handling both the chickens and guinea pigs - it's a great learning opportunity for them.
"They love cuddling Pickle and Pepper and have been very excited that our hens are now laying eggs. We're now selling eggs to parents and they're proving really popular - they're delicious!"
Carl Cooke, on behalf of LVDG, says: "As housebuilders we are committed to supporting the communities in which we build, so we're delighted to make these donations to Lawley Village Primary Academy, which is playing such an important role within the new Lawley community."
