Ceremony officially opens Penygarn Community Primary School

We recently had a visit from the Welsh Government’s Minister for Education Kirsty Williams AM, who officially opened our refurbished and extended School. The school choir sang for the Minister and she spent lots of time speaking to pupils who were all absolutely brilliant throughout her tour. The £4m project has transformed classrooms and the overall condition of our school and resulted in community facilities being relocated into the extended Flying Start building on the school site. Some of the work here at Penygarn included: Reconfiguration, refurbishment and extension of Junior block including new classrooms, kitchen, hall, courtyard, toilets, library/IT, medical room, meeting room, community space, admin office, forest school room. New LED interactive teaching screens throughout the school. New Community facilities in an extended Flying Start building. New insulation, heating and security systems. New flexible teaching spaces

Eco Warrior Success

As part of our Eco Schools Programme, we have created an action plan. We want to reduce litter and waste at Penygarn and encourage wildlife by planting flowers, building homes for animals and making bird feeders. We meet each week to discuss ideas, check our progress and take part in different eco activities. We’ve enjoyed planting vegetables in our garden and are looking forward to trying some in the summer. We’ve also helped to organise our first Penygarn Spring Clean litter pick in the community. We would like everyone to help us to keep Penygarn tidy by not dropping litter and by putting it in the nearest bin. Recently, we were awarded our Platinum flag renewal. The assessor was very impressed with our ideas and enthusiasm. Keep posted for more Eco news next term!
