Refurbished PE Changing Rooms
After a long 6-week summer break, our students came back to a new set of facilities with the much-needed refurbishment of the PE changing rooms. With some funding from the council, the new changing rooms have helped improve the environment of the PE department. Not only will the changes benefit the school community, they will also benefit the wider local community who use these facilities all year round and especially in the summer months when using the swimming pool.
Miss Parry, House Champion and Dance & PE Teacher said that “The new changing rooms are immaculate. They look professional and clean which provides the students a positive environment to change for their PE lessons”. We also asked her how do you think the changing rooms have contributed to school life in the PE environment to which she replied : “The new PE changing rooms meant we had to alter the routines around getting changed for PE, specifically because we want these changing rooms to stay in the amazing condition they are in at the moment. It has allowed the PE department to feel proud of their facilities and hopefully the students feel the same way! It will also contribute to the wider community who use the changing facilities after school hours.”
All in all, this addition to the range of the school facilities at Testbourne Community School has had a positive impact on school life and there are more additions to be added next summer, with the final phase of the refurbishment of the changing rooms.
