St Oswald's Playgroup & Community Facility
The proposal for this project was conceived from a need for more space in the new school. It has now become an opportunity to offer a new and exciting approach to the teaching of renewable energy, environment, recycling and conservation. It will be separate from the school building, a place to go to explore science and energy. It will be made available to a wide range of children, starting from the very young with mothers and toddlers, to the community, offering a space to see renewable energy at work in a comprehendible quantity, ‘ideas you can take home and use’. The process of energy production from the solar panels will be easy to follow with large digital display boards. An understanding of water and the individuals effect on its usage will be shown with a grey water recycling system. It will also be a used space, all of the day the building will be in use through playgroup, clubs and a classroom. The plans are for a turf roofed 15.5 metre x 6 metre building in a currently disused area of the school grounds. The school catchment area straddles the National Park boundary and nearly half of the school’s numbers are from families based within Pembrokeshire Coast National Park.
