Middlesbrough Herald & Post - - FRONT PAGE -

THE fi­nal day of term went with a bang for two de­struc­tive pupils af­ter they gave a de­mo­li­tion crew the or­der to “de­stroy” their school.

Pupils James Binns, 13, of Wyn­yard and Molly Bain­bridge, 12, of Nor­ton, took charge of the de­mo­li­tion of St Michael’s Catholic Academy af­ter win­ning a competition to raze the for­mer school build­ing to the ground.

The three-storey build­ing that stood on Beamish Road, Billing­ham, for the past 50 years, has re­cently been re­placed by a brand new academy in front of the orig­i­nal school.

Un­der the watch­ful eye of build­ing firm Kier, and cheered on by hun­dreds of St Michael’s stu­dents and staff from the safety of their new school, they gave the or­der to be­gin the de­mo­li­tion of the build­ing.
