It was back to school for Dunstable mayor Councillor John Chatterley for a VIP official opening of new Year 5 classrooms at the town’s Hadrian Academy.
The mayor carried out a ribbon-cutting ceremony to launch the new facilities, called Tudor Lodge. Sharon Ingham, principal of the Hadrian Avenue academy, said: “I’d like to thank everyone who worked so hard on this project. I’m delighted with the building and furnishings.”
It has been a busy term so far at Hadrian, which has also held a sponsored Flash Dance event. Pupils from the Street Dance Club led the way, to the sound of chart-topping music.
A total of £950 was raised, which will go towards ‘extras’. St Patrick’s House raised the most money.
> The academy’s open day is on Wednesday, October 16.
