Hunter Hall pupils returned to school this term to a new state of the art science centre complete with a skeleton affectionately known as Ainsworth.
The centre has been built ahead of schedule after huge efforts by all of the Hunter Hall community who worked tirelessly in the last academic year to fundraise for the build. Everything from auction evenings and sponsored walks to bike challenges and cake baking, breakfast meetings and music events were hosted last year. The parents group worked incredibly hard to organise events, as did the children who thought up and implemented their own fundraising ideas.
Head teacher Mrs Donna Vinsome commented: “I am absolutely thrilled that the science centre has been built ahead of schedule. This really was a massive undertaking and I could not be prouder of everyone who helped us make this vision a reality. For the children to be able to benefit so quickly from such a resource is amazing – we may have the scientists of the future here at Hunter Hall and now they have the science centre to fulfil their dreams.”
Hunter Hall is continuing on its fundraising mission this year to equip the newly built science centre with the latest technology and gadgets as befits the 21st century.
