The new £8.2million Broadacre Primary School building has reached another milestone in its construction phase, with the opening of the multi-use-games-area (MUGA).
Partners celebrated with a ‘MUGA official opening’ involving all the staff and pupils from the school, with special guest mascot, Roary the Tiger.
Lisa Staines, Executive Head at Broadacre Primary School said: “We got the whole school involved in a full day of sporting activities on the new games area. Pupils surrounded the football pitches whilst they watched and created their own spectator banners to cheer their peers on. The children were so excited to be handed their certificates and trophies by Roary the Tiger!”
Esteem General Manager, Gavin Barley, added: “Working with Hull City Council and Sewell Construction on another engaging event has been a pleasure. The process instils such a sense of pride in the whole team, especially when we see the excited faces of those it means the most to – the pupils.
“We now head into the final countdown, with the next big milestone to look forward to being the completion of the school due early 2022!”
The completion of the school will provide 630 pupil places, 210 more places than the existing building, and incorporating a 10-place purpose-built space for children with Autistic Spectrum Condition, a 52-place nursery, as well as enhanced external spaces and teaching areas.
Hull City Council has invested around £50million in the city’s schools, to increase pupil places and ensure students have access to the best possible educational environments.
