After many months of planning and huge investment over the summer to install and complete the project, it was wonderful to finally see the students exploring their new space.

“Inspirational learning spaces are hugely important at Dulwich College Suzhou and we are setting the standard yet again with this new natural play area for our Early Years students.” John Todd, Headmaster, told parents, “The concept is to connect our children with nature and to grow their understanding of the natural environment. The children now have an inspiring outdoor learning space and we look forward to integrating outdoor learning into many different areas of the curriculum.”

With the overall design being undertaken by Greenspace from Shanghai, the playground equipment has been sourced from Kompan, award-winning specialists in playground design, to ensure all equipment is age appropriate and meets strict safety standards. Their equipment in the playground has been constructed using Forest Stewardship Council (FSC) materials to ensure Dulwich supports responsible management of the world’s forests. This continues association with FSC, building on the certified paper used for printing. This is vitally important to the college and its wider philosophy concerning sustainability.

Filled with natural materials, lots of greenery and exciting spaces for the children to explore, Head of DUCKS, Melody Stuckey, said, “Our children now have a very unique opportunity to discover, create and learn more about the natural world in the best playground I have ever seen!”

This project fits in perfectly with the broader strategy of sustainability at the college and being mindful of the impact on the environment.
