LES Powell School pupils are getting into the swing of things. The Mount Pritchard school recently installed a liberty swing to enhance its outdoor playground.
The swing is designed for children who use a wheelchair and allows them to experience the fun and thrill of a swing.
It also has a seat so it can be used by children who are not in a wheelchair.
Principal Sargon Makko said the pupils were delighted with the arrival of the swing, providing for the first time the unique experience of soaring in the air.
"Some of our pupils haven't experienced being on a swing, or experienced anything like this before," he said. "In fact, it is so popular that we need to timetable the usage of the swing."
The swing was donated by Variety the Children's Charity and installed by Crown Lift Trucks and the ALS Group last month.
The school caters for 80 pupils with moderate to severe intellectual disabilities, numerous disabilities and autism.
Of the 80 pupils, 30 have a physical disability and are unable to part take recreational activities.
Mr Makko said the swing meant all children could participate in physical recreational activities.
"It has provided a recreational facility for our students to further engage in our school's curriculum and in physical activities," he said.
"It's an excellent and full of fun. It's something that we wanted to get, but couldn't afford it."
