Shaded Nation – Shade Sails
A growing number of schools are installing shade sail structures as this provides an inexpensive and secure area in which outdoor lessons can take place safe from the sun and other elements.
Naturally, the benefits of this are most obvious in the summer months when the weather is warm and the sun is shining. However, shades don’t automatically become redundant when winter comes around there’s still plenty of uses for the structures.
Outdoor learning is always going to be more common in the summer due to the temperature, but it doesn’t have to stop entirely just because the weather has become a little bit colder. Taking a class under the shade can be great way to teach kids about the importance of wrapping up warm and staying protected against colds and flu.
Furthermore, holding an outdoor class can be a good approach for getting kids to learn about the different seasons and the weather.
Many schools hold a variety of events during winter time, such as bonfire night celebrations, firework displays and Christmas festivities. Shade structures can offer a useful means of shelter for people on these occasions and are a handy base for collecting money or serving drinks and food.
Shade structures may be put to more practical use in the winter months as well. They can provide a place to store outdoor furniture and play equipment that needs to be kept safe from the elements during the winter months.
These are just a few of the potential winter uses for a school shade sail structure and prove these products are an investment that can provide benefits all year round rather than just in the summer.
