Zuma Chair Donation
The school was delighted to take delivery of five new Zuma Chairs for use by the students. The specially adapted chairs were donated by the Aylesbury Vale District Camping and Caravanning Club who raised over £500 to purchase the equipment.
Zuma Chairs are specially contoured, with a rocking feature that is proven to improve the ability to concentrate for the user.
The club chose to support the school as one of their members, Vikki O’Connell, has a daughter who attends Booker Park.
Jo Elliott is an Occupational Therapist at Booker Park and she was on hand to receive the donation. Jo explains the benefits of the specially designed chairs: “Some children with special needs find sitting very difficult, however whilst using the Zuma chairs they are able to do this for significantly longer periods of time, aiding better levels of attention and focus. Many of the children at Booker Park attend and learn better when able to move, we have found the Zuma chair provides regulating movement without being distracting.”
