Wragby Primary School welcomed Coun Dennis Hoyes as guest of honour to a commissioning ceremony following installation of solar panels, energy-efficient eco lighting, plus new suspended ceilings, and a major refit of the cloakroom areas.
The panels, lighting and ceilings cost £42,300 – with funding provided partly through a loan from Lincolnshire County Council – and are expected to slash Co2 emissions and energy costs. “The educational benefits for the children are a major bonus as well as the obvious energy saving advantages, with particular opportunities to enhance the study of science, maths and the environment” said head teacher Rachel Osgodby.
The cloakroom and toilet facilities also benefitted from major modernisation, including individual lockers at a total cost of £83,000, largely funded by the county council.
Marcus Adams, school business manager, added: “We are very excited to have upgraded our facilities to a fantastic standard for all our pupils.”
