There was an air of celebration at Bodnant Community School in Prestatyn recently as the brand new extension was officially opened.
Councillor Ann Davies, Chair of Denbighshire and Gwyn Bartley Chair of Governors at Bodnant Community School Prestatyn officially opened the new £3.4m extension and refurbishment project which allows the infants to join junior pupils on the same site.
The new extension has 7 new classrooms, a hall, community room, a new reception and offices. There is also a new staff and visitors car park which can be accessed from Ffordd Parc Bodnant. As part of the project the existing building was also refurbished.
The project has been funded jointly by Denbighshire County Council and Welsh Government through its 21st Century Schools and Education Programme.
Helen Vernon, Headteacher at Bodnant, said: “The children are so fortunate in having such a purpose built school which has been designed to accommodate so many activities. The children are also fortunate in having a team of dedicated teachers, each showing in their own ways true examples of kindness, caring and thoughtful ways where they will nurture and teach.”
“I am most grateful for the funding from Denbighshire and Welsh Government 21st century schools and the valuable input from our local authority into this special project, which will enable us to fulfil our dreams”.
