Kingswode Hoe opens new Science Room
YOUNGSTERS at Colchester’s community special school, Kingswode Hoe are delighted with the transformation of their science room. It is now a fit for purpose space complete with science and technology benches with electrical sockets, a refurbished preparation area with two sinks and non-slip flooring.
The £25,000 transformation was made possible with the support of Wooden Spoon and also through Stoke by Nayland Golf Club who presented a cheque for £4,400, £500 of which came through Peter Jay in match funding from Barclay’s Bank.
Attending the official opening on 13th November 2017 on behalf of Wooden Spoon were Seamus Farrelly (Eastern Counties chairman) and Alan Line (Eastern Counties treasurer).
Alice Constantine, Head of School said, “We were delighted to welcome representatives from Wooden Spoon along with Kingswode Hoe School and SEAX trust governors to officially open our newly refurbished science room. Pupils and staff are thrilled with the new facility and we are so grateful for support from the charity. School prefects enjoyed meeting our visitors and serving refreshments and the Year 10 class demonstrated their understanding of the digestive system with Lego during a science lesson led by Mr Logan before the ribbon was cut.
“The space will continue to have a really positive impact on teaching, learning and engagement in science – thank you again!”
