Pupils cut rib­bon and make his­tory

Kentish Express Ashford & District - - Hospital Update -

Two new class­rooms have been of­fi­cially opened at Ald­ing­ton Pri­mary, amid cel­e­bra­tions for the school’s Mu­sic and Arts week.

Ald­ing­ton Pri­mary is ex­pand­ing as the vil­lage it serves gets big­ger, and is now tak­ing 30 chil­dren into re­cep­tion each year.

Pupils them­selves cut the rib­bon to of­fi­cially launch the new class­rooms, which were fin­ished around the start of the year and will be used for chil­dren from Years 4 and 5.

Head teacher San­dra MacCourt said: “I was par­tic­u­larly pleased that the chil­dren could be so in­volved in the event to mark the oc­ca­sion.

“There is a lovely link be­tween the cre­ation of a new en­vi­ron­ment for the pupils and the creative work that they have done dur­ing Mu­sic and Arts Week.”

The build­ing work was funded by de­vel­oper con­tri­bu­tions, KCC and the school’s PTFA.
