Jack Lopresti helped open St Peter's Primary School in Pilning yesterday. Jack helped mark the opening along with local Cllr Robert Griffin, pupils, parents, governors and staff at the recently completed building.
Although nearly four months after they moved in, the event was delayed so as to coincide with St Peter's Day, which the school celebrated in the local church.
The opening ceremony involved songs from the pupils, prayers, blessings and the burying of a time capsule. It came to a close with the release of balloons by the children. The school was built after the merger of Redwick and Northwick Primary School and Pilning Primary and £4.7 million was invested into the project.
"I was so pleased to be invited to yesterday's opening ceremony of the wonderful new St Peters school. The school is a great asset to the local area. I had a great day and it was a real honour and privilege to have been with the staff, helpers, pupils and volunteers on such a special occasion. I look forward to seeing the School continue to go from strength to strength and hosting a visit at the Palace of Westminster for the pupils very soon!"
