Mike Haslin, Chief Executive Officer at TUCO, The University Caterers Organisation, discusses how to achieve value for money in these unpredictable times
The Tipi Company
Durable, reliable and weatherproof, the tipis provide the ideal outdoor space for environmental education, recreational and adventure activities and more. A tipi will provide your pupils with the opportunity to experience active learning outside the classroom, whatever the weather, and is a motivational space that has more impact and credibility to indoor classrooms.
We live in a world where we stay indoors, a tipi can aid to encourage children to adventure into the outdoors and stimulate new interest about the environment around them.
The Tipi Company is based in Manchester and all products are made in the UK – the company has just been awarded the Made in Britain marque. The tipis are available in three different sizes and can either be built on hard standing areas such as car parks or patios, or they can be erected onto grassed areas or fields. Light a camp fire inside to make it cosy for overnight camp-outs, or roll up the back section for geography lessons and to enjoy the sunshine.
