New Primary School open at Newton St Cyres

Neil Copland, Early Years and Childcare Adviser for the North and Mid Devon team was happy to be invited to the opening ceremony of the new Newton St Cyres Primary School on Friday 22nd June.  There were speeches by members of the Parish Council and County Council and the ribbon was cut by the oldest and youngest children in the school. The theme of the ceremony was ‘working together’ because so many people have worked very hard over many years to reach this point.  It was also a pleasure to hear the federation band playing two pieces and to have a tour of the school.  The ceremony followed the craning in of the Pre-school building the day before which was moved in sections from the old school site as the children watched with excitement.
