‘Co-operating’ to improve our Academy

The Co-op Academy Portland’s playground has enjoyed a ‘face-lift’ thanks to the efforts of Co-op Academy Governors and Co-op volunteers.



The Co-op funded the work and over twenty volunteers spent a day installing new benches and flower beds. They also repaired boundary walls and brightened many areas with a colourful lick of paint.

Ian Hall, Co-op Academy Portland governor and organiser, said ‘It’s fantastic for so many to volunteer their time to such a worthy academy and see the benefits for the children of working co-operatively.’
