Sitting pretty!

Congratulations to everyone at Cathedral Primary School and Nursery in Motherwell on winning a range of fantastic furniture


The nursery won a new outdoor storage trolley, wooden trike, fabulous outdoor story seats, additional unit for lending library, new sensory mirrored unit, indoor seats with storage underneath, witch house, a garage and a wooden trike.

The competition was organised by Spaceright Europe, which is based in Cumbernauld.

Stephanie Lawrie, Sales Manager, of Spaceright, said: "We had some showroom furniture from our Inspirational Classrooms range that was almost brand new and we wanted a local nursery to benefit from it; so we ran a competition for North Lanarkshire nurseries as we are a business based in North Lanarkshire we are always keen to support our local community.

"We received a large number of entries into the competition so it was very difficult to decide on a winner, obviously people had spent a lot of time and a lot of thought had went into it, there were some very clever, creative and inspiring entries. In the end the judging panel decides on Cathedral's entry as we just loved the little poem.

"It was delightful to see the children in the nursery using and benefiting from the furniture which was already in place by the time I visited and being put to good use.

Inspirational Classrooms includes a range of resources to support teaching, enrich learning and engage pupils. 

Maria Shields, Head Teacher of Our Lady of Good Aid Cathedral Primary and Nursery, said: "Our pupils and staff within our nursery are delighted at having won some super furniture in a competition from Inspirational Furniture.

"It's fabulous news for a fabulous nursery, well done to everyone concerned."

Working with Mrs Murphy the boys and girls compiled a 30 word poem stating why they should win:

Inspirational furniture is really cool

We'd love it in our nursery school

Stimulating, encouraging and inspiring

That's why we'd like to be acquiring

This super prize that we're admiring
