As many oil and gas companies cut back on community or charity spend due to the current challenging industry climate, downhole solutions provider to the global energy industry Well-SENSE Technology Ltd, has demonstrated that financial donations aren’t the only way to make a difference.
Well-SENSE designed,w constructed and donated a sandpit to Tullynessle School, near Alford in Aberdeenshire, in support of the outdoor learning curriculum for 45 nursery and school children.
The three by four metre sand play area, which was tailor-made to fit the school’s playground, also incorporates access for disabled children.
Dan Purkis, technology director at Well-SENSE said, ‘The best, most innovative and creative ideas happen when people aren’t restricted to a classroom or office environment. We are passionate about encouraging children to learn in a way that captures their imagination.
‘School children are the workforce of tomorrow and it’s vitally important to enthuse and spark an inquisitive nature from as young an age as possible, wherever their passions lie. Hopefully, Well-SENSE’s efforts with Tullynessle School demonstrate that some time and dedicated effort are all that’s required to make a positive impact.’
Tullynessle School’s head teacher, Valerie Goodlad said, ‘We were delighted to receive support from Well-SENSE to advance our outdoor learning activity offering, which is an integral part of our day-to-day curriculum. It means so much to the children at Tullynessle School, all of whom are so very happy, I’m sure it will provide much enjoyment for many years to come.’
