Forest Park School wins LEGOLAND®  school competition

Posted on: 14 Jul 2017

Pupils at Forest Park Preparatory School are celebrating after being crowned winners of LEGOLAND® Discovery Centre’s #MyMINILANDSchool Search.

Forest Park took part in LEGOLAND® Discovery Centre Manchester’s #MyMINILANDSchool campaign, which saw pupils across the North West, along with the help of their teachers, being asked to sketch a picture of their school, for the chance to win their place in the attraction’s MINILAND® display.

On Thursday 13 July, winning pupils from Forest Park helped to start the build of their school in LEGOLAND® Discovery Centre’s all-new Creative Workshop.

The final brick will be added at the school’s grounds on the last day of term (Tuesday, 18 July) before making its way back to the ultimate indoor LEGO® playground to be displayed in MINILAND. The school is also set to receive its logo made entirely out of LEGO®, and Kids Go Free vouchers for all pupils.

Forest Park Preparatory School pupils are no strangers when it comes to LEGO®, with a dedicated after school club running in the school since April 2016 for children in Early Years and Key Stage 1.

Headteacher at Forest Park Preparatory School, Nick Tucker, said: "LEGO® is obviously great for children to hone their fine motor skills but it also encourages them to be creative, problem solve and helps to promote teamwork, as they always split off into little groups to work on a build."  He added: "The children really enjoyed making their creations and are so thrilled to have won the competition.  They can’t wait to visit LEGOLAND® Discovery Centre Manchester to help build the school!"

Jenn McDonough, General Manager of LEGOLAND® Discovery Center said: “We would like to sincerely thank all the teachers and students who entered into this year’s competition, we had some brilliant entries! We are really thrilled to announce Forest Park Preparatory School as the winners of our #MyMINILANDSchool competition, they will be a fantastic addition to our MINILAND® display!”
