Plashet School celebrated the New Year with a new building when an audience of 200 guests, staff and students attended the opening of their arts annex. The ribbon cutting ceremony included the youngest pupil currently at the school together with two of the school’s most senior former pupils, one of whom had attended before the Second World War.
The three-storey building connects to the existing school via two link bridges and provides a dining hall with internal and external dining space, a sports hall and expressive arts teaching facilities. It helps transform what had been a fragmented external space into an accessible and secure student plaza. The building also has an allotment plot and green roof area. Head teacher Rachel McGowan said she was “particularly honoured that the school can now offer superb facilities for drama, music and PE”.
