New School Building Work Begins – October 2016 – September 2017
The construction of our two new classroom and sports hall has begun. Our Head Boy and Head Girl began the works by making the first dig. The children will keep you updated on how the project progresses by taking photographs at different stages of the build.
Our new school cross is complete
The new school cross our children have been working on, with our local artist Helen Pickard, is now finished. We hope to have it up and in place on our new school building over the half term holiday.
Her Majesty’s Lord-Lieutenant Visits School
The Mayor and Mayoress of Durham visited school this week along with another very important visitor. The Queens’s Lord–Lieutenant (British monarch’s personal representative in each county of the United Kingdom) visited school to talk to the children and to share her experiences and to outline the role that she does. Lord -Lieutenant, Mrs Sue Snowden, had a tour of the school and called into each classroom to speak with the children and to answer a range of questions. We must say, both children and staff thoroughly enjoyed meeting and speaking with Lord -Lieutenant Snowden who was extremely friendly and full of fascinating facts. We hope she enjoyed her visit into school and she is always welcome to visit again in the future.
