IT’S ship ahoy at Parkinson Lane School, Halifax, as pupils get ready to crew their new playground attraction

The 30-metre wooden replica boat called “HMS PTA” has transformed the back playground, thanks to the hard work of the Parent Teacher Association

Head teacher Gugsy Ahmed said: “It aims to encourage learning through play.

“The boat looks great and it takes away a corner of the playground that always gathered leaves and rubbish.”

The school’s 140 nursery and reception children will all get a chance to “crew” the ship.
