Brand New Classrooms for Devonshire School - 03.11.09
Paralympic Gold winning medallist David Weir will help Devonshire Primary School celebrate the opening of its three new classrooms on Friday 20 November.
David Weir will be unveiling a commemorative plaque to mark the opening of the new building. The new classrooms are modern, bright, environmentally friendly and wheelchair accessible. As well as the new classrooms, there are three new group rooms, new toilets, staircase and a lift. The new building also means there is now more space in the playground for the children to play in.
7 year old pupils, Eddie and Angela, said: "It's great. Our new classroom has special lights that can be as bright or as dim as we need them to be. Also the windows are very big; they let in lots of light and keep the classrooms warm."
Head teacher Martin Kearsey said: "I am delighted that our children and staff now have wonderful new learning rooms which reflect the high standards we strive for at Devonshire. The beautifully designed extension with its eco-friendly use of natural light and solar glass has given the whole school a real lift. There's also more play space for our children."
Cllr Tony Brett Young, Executive Member for Young People said: "The pupils will really benefit from this extra space. The new classrooms are light and bright and will provide the perfect conditions for the students to study in. They will also benefit by having a bigger playground to play in".
