Reading has just become a whole lot more enjoyable for pupils at Cuddington Croft Primary School in Cheam following the opening of the school’s new library and classroom complex.
The new facility, which pupils have been able to watch going up over the course of the academic year, was formally opened by the mayor of Epsom and Ewell, Robert Foote, at a ceremony marked by cake and balloons for the eager school pupils.
The whole school family rallied round to help with the library project – the PTA donated £70,000 towards the cost of the construction, and a further £5,000 towards furnishing the building. In addition, earlier this year staff, parents and former pupils donated their spare time during half term to unpack and install hundreds of boxes of fittings and fixtures in the new rooms.
Now that the longed-for facility is finally open and ready for use, Cuddington head teacher Scott Maclean said it was something that the whole school could take pride in – and, even more importantly, made use of.
“So many people have helped in the effort to make this new building a reality,” he explained. “It’s a wonderful new facility which will add hugely to what we can offer the children here at the school. Surroundings can make a huge difference to a pupil’s experience of education, and what we have here is something really special. I hope that will be reflected in the results and the enjoyment of learning that it helps produce."
