We were delighted to welcome Neil O’Brien MP to officially open our new classroom and extension. The completion of this project has seen our year six class move into a wonderful new learning environment and the wider school has also benefited with the creation of our new nurture space and a new toilet block.
The ceremony was started with pupils from years three, four, five and six performing on the Japanese Taiko Drums led by Mr Kirkland. The audience made up of parents, governors and Learn-AT Trust Leader Stef Edwards, then saw the building blessed by Rev Jonathan Dowman. John Day, Chair of Governors, thanked all who had been involved in the project over the past eighteen months.
Friends of Church Langton School presented a cheque to the school of £10,000 which had made a significant contribution to the new building.
Mr O’Brien, who had visited the school when the initial plans were being created, was delighted to be able to open the extension and pleased to speak with the year six pupils again having recently welcomed them to the Houses of Parliament as part of their trip to London.
Mr Roddy, headteacher, captured the feeling of all involved, “We are delighted with the new extension and are grateful to all who have been involved in the project. At Church Langton we are always striving to provide the best facilities for our pupils and following the creation of the art room and the all weather sports pitch, the new extension will provide a wonderful learning environment for pupils for many years to come.”
