Pupils have been given the keys to better learning facilities, thanks to a local housebuilder.
Bellway Homes, which is creating an estate at the former St Mary’s Hospital, has awarded £2,500 to nearby Stannington First School to buy computer equipment and a whiteboard.
Headteacher Helen Stokoe said: “We were absolutely delighted to receive the donation. The school is collecting funds for a new learning environment so every penny counts.”
Bellway Sales Director Rob Armstrong said: “Children from our new Stannington Park development may well attend Stannington First School so we were pleased to support the school’s ambitions.”
