The Santa Maria ship from eibe was installed last November at Santa Maria la Blanca school by our partner from Spain, Proelium. It's a very big school for 2.100 children inside Montecarmelo, a nice residential area in Madrid. The playground is used by children who attend the school, but also by children from outside. The school opens its doors every day after school for anyone who wants to use their facilities.
Santa Maria has been planned for children among 3 and 6 yeras old. There was nothing at place before and now the children habe a big playground where they can imagine their big adventures on the sea. The school directors are very satisfied with the final result and, what's much more important, chirldren and parents are very happy.
It was fantastic to see that during the installation process the children were looking through the windows with happy and surprised faces. They kept asking everyday "When do you finish?" or "When is it possible to play on it?". This is the real sense of our job.
The impact protection floor imitates sea water under the boat with sand around it. The area has been completed with an ibondo labyrinth playboard.
