Kilsyth Woodland Music Project

(Lanarkshire)

Children from Kilsyth Primary School will work with artist Sarah Wakeford and musician Kirsty Hamilton, to design and make musical and art installations for their woodland learning area. This project will transform the space to inspire creative play and will benefit both school pupils and community groups using the area.

Our goals:

  • The pupils of Kilsyth Primary will develop their knowledge and creative skills through working with specialists. The input that the children have in the design and manufacture of the installations will give them real ownership of their outdoor space.
  • We will reclaim a previously overgrown area of the school grounds, to create an attractive space for play and outdoor learning. The space will be available for classes during school time, as well as for community groups at other times.
  • This year we are celebrating 140 years of Kilsyth Primary School. We would like to create a legacy by developing the school grounds to reflect our commitment to creativity, play and outdoor learning, and to increase understanding of sustainability.

How we will achieve our goals

We plan to use as many natural, found and reclaimed objects as we can, such as bike wheels, old wooden doors, food cans, PVC barrels, wood and sticks. We will also need to purchase specialist art and music equipment, tools and building supplies. The award will also pay for the specialist help we need to make the area really exciting!

Where the money will go

We want to transform an unattractive abandoned area visible from outside the school grounds, into a lively, interesting, space, well used by the community. The space would be made available to parent groups after school, and to the Kilsyth Children’s Club for after school/ holiday activities. Other groups may use the space for special events.
