Primary Official Opening Ceremony

Tuesday 2 Jun 2015

On Tuesday we invited a number of guests to celebrate the opening of the primary phase of our school and to thank everyone who has worked hard as part of a large team to provide us with such an impressive building for our children to enjoy their learning in every day.

Our guests included the Mayor and Mayoress of Redbridge, members of the Education Funding Agency, the architects PTEa, the London Borough of Redbridge, consultants from Gardiner Theobald, the project team at Bouygues Leadbitter and a number of colleagues from Ark Schools including the Ark Central Projects team.

Everyone was treated to a fabulous fanfare of music by the Secondary School dhol drummers, a song was sung by the Reception children and we finished off by with a tour of our fabulous building.

Venessa Willms, the Director of Ark Primary Schools, was invited to officially open the building. A plaque to commemorate the occasion will shortly be on display in the main Primary reception area. The children were each presented with a beautiful bookmark in honour of the occasion and as a memento of being part of our founding primary cohort.
