Macclesfield Express - - FRONT PAGE -

CHIL­DREN at Parkroyal Com­mu­nity School en­joyed a sum­mer fair as part of a grand launch for their new £2.5m ex­ten­sion.

The school on Lyon Street in Mac­cles­field won govern­ment fund­ing for new build­ings be­cause it was over­sub­scribed and did not have enough space to ac­com­mo­date the chil­dren.

The can­teen, Re­cep­tion class build­ing, school of­fice and preschool fa­cil­i­ties have been de­mol­ished and the new ex­ten­sion in­cludes an Early Years Cen­tre, dining room, kitchen to al­low the chil­dren to learn cook­ery, play area, rooms for staff to give chil­dren ex­tra tuition and ex­tended school of­fice.

The school in­vited Mac­cles­field mayor Alift Hare­wood to the grand launch which was fol­lowed by the sum­mer fair, with fam­ily games and re­fresh­ments.

Caron Cor­den, head­teacher, said: “The Mayor of Mac­cles­field at­tended for a tour of our new fa­cil­i­ties fol­lowed by a short speech in the lower hall.

“Then the sum­mer fair fun started with lots of ex­cit­ing stalls, fish and chips and cream teas.

“It’s been a long process but we were de­lighted to in­vite the com­mu­nity to view our won­der­ful new school ex­ten­sion.”
