New classroom thanks to fundraiser

Burnham Market Primary School's new classroom has been unveiled

Burnham Market Primary School has a new classroom thanks to a £100,000 fundraiser by the Friends of the school.

The building, which is separate from the school, provides a quiet space for the children, along with a classroom and a kitchen.

It's been named the Rosalie Room in memory of long-standing governor Rosalie Monbiot who died earlier this year.

Jane Skeet, treasurer for The Friends of Burnham Market Primary School, played a key role in securing funds for the project, including support from the Holkham Estate, the Tuscan Farm Shop and The Harold Moorhouse Charity.

Builders Grocott and Murfitt made a significant contribution by managing the project and also sourced materials at a reduced fee through the Building Norfolk community support programme.

Jane said: "I'm so proud that the children are now going to be able to use this classroom and get so much out of it. "

Daniel Thrower, CEO of The Wensum Trust, which manages the school, said: "The creation of this new learning environment echoes everything we are aiming to achieve, with mental health and wellbeing at the foundation of all we do. I would like to congratulate all those who have been involved in providing such a wonderful space for our children."
