Planning presentation & concept

Conclusion & Feedback

Even after a longer period of use, the school management is still extremely satisfied with the implementation of the various play and exercise areas in their playground. The pupils like to take advantage of the offer often and distribute themselves in a balanced way to the different zones according to their needs. The multi-sports field has coped well with the intensive use so far and is also used for sports lessons during the hot months. A highlight is the large tube slide, which is often used as a shortcut between the different levels of the grounds.

We wish the whole school a lot of fun with their eibe playground!
