Mayor opens Monkwood Primary

A NEW school building was opened officially this week by the Mayor of Rotherham Coun Shaun Wright.

Mr Wright is a governor and parent of children at Rawmarsh Monkwood Primary, and he joined pupils, staff and parents to celebrate the £2.4 million revamp at the amalgamated school.

The infant and junior schools were merged in to one school in September 2008, and the new building now forms an extension to the existing junior school bringing all pupils ‘under one roof’.

The new building includes four classrooms, a main entrance and staff accommodation.
