Our OPAL Journey



At St Paul's, we are committed to ensuring high quality play opportunities are available to all our children. We believe that play is essential for the physical, emotional, social, spiritual and intellectual development of everychild. Most of our best childhood memories are from playing outdoors, climbing trees and exploring the wide world around us. OPAL gives us the opportunity to give those memories to your children. OPAL (Outdoor Play and Learning) is all about using natural and man made resources to allow children to be inspired and creative at playtime.


Join us on our journey and see our progress below!

We now have a mud kitchen too! Thank you so much to Mr Gunning for creating this for us. We can’t wait to see what the children start making! 🧑‍🍳

Our loose parts shed is complete! A huge thank you to everyone that helped to get this built so quickly. We can’t wait to fill it with exciting loose parts!

We have started our OPAL journey with an amazing turn out of staff, parents and children to help prepare palettes for our Mud Kitchen and dig our new Sensory Bible Path.
