Students at St Laurence’s Primary have access to an in-ground outdoor trampoline during break times and also for supervised use throughout the day. The health and wellbeing benefits of jumping on a trampoline are well documented.
- Trampolining improves coordination and balance, therefore improving motor skills.
- Trampolining improves core strength and posture, which is vital for children being able to sit for periods of time in the classroom without their concentration being affected by difficulties with body control.
- The circulation of blood and oxygen to the brain through bouncing on a trampoline is great for making the mind more alert and focused, and for increasing concentration and memory.
- Trampolining is a great way to have fun, and stimulates the body to naturally release endorphins, which in turn helps kids to feel happier and more at ease.
