Pupils get first glimpse of £7m Dewstow school
TWELVE pupils enjoyed a sneak preview of their new £7 million school.
Dewstow Primary is officially due to open in November and will be the only school in Wales to teach entirely through plaza learning.
Interactive learning boards, iPad 3s and beautiful landscaped outdoor areas are just some of the features of the 210-place school.
It is the first Monmouthshire primary school promoting a fully flexible learning environment which meets the vision for the county council to raise standards of achievement and 21st-century learning.
Head teacher Gill Bray said there is a real buzz around West End Infants School as pupils there are moving into the flagship building.
“We took 12 to look around and they have told their friends all about it. They are all very excited,” she said.
Pupils have kept up to date with the building’s progress thanks to construction company Wilmott Dixon.
They attended the burial of a time capsule on site earlier this year and some saw how it was shaping up with another tour in May.
Mrs Bray added the council are working on the interior, putting in the IT and furniture, ahead of its launch in two months’ time.
