Pupils have been given the chance to make their mark by signing the steel framework as part of re-development work at Nene and Ramnoth Primary School.

Ramnoth Primary School and Nene Infant and Nursery School, both based in Wisbech, will be merging the schools on to one site in 2019, allowing them room to increase the number of pupils over the next few years.

Pupils from both schools were on hand to sign the steelwork in the new dining room marking themselves as the ‘Class of 2018’.

Pete Williamson, Project Manager at R G Carter, said: “With our ongoing our presence on campus, we wanted to create a fun activity to get all the children involved and make them feel part of the team. Not only was the event a great way to inspire the next generation of potential construction workers, we also helped create a nice legacy for children in years to come.”

Karen Crawley, Executive Principal at Nene and Ramnoth School, Staff praised R G Carter for the way that they have engaged with the children, saying: “I would like to thank R G Carter for providing this brilliant opportunity to mark this exciting new chapter of our school. It’s lovely for the children to be involved because there has been lots of talk about the work and they are very excited to see the changes.”

The re-development of the school involves the demolition of the existing layout, making room for a new main hall with kitchen and dining facilities to be to be housed all under one roof and improving the circulation routes through the school. Phase one was completed in March and involved the build of 12 new classrooms, breakout spaces and restrooms.
