Architects and designers have come up with signage that looks like foliage, litter bins with dry leaf motifs, and lamp-posts that resemble trees. Beyond the clock tower and the colourful canteen is the lovely grassy amphitheatre that is a visual delight. Then there are open pavilions or activity huts with teracotta roofs, all arranged in a crescent.

And there’s the lovely fort in stone. This is no imposing structure, but a friendly fort you would like to run up and down the steps of, and hide in the turrets. In front is a life-size chessboard, and children can actually take on roles of chess pieces like pawns, and kings and queens. Alongside are similar life-size hopscotch and noughts and crosses in stone.
