Hallfieldfirst reveals its eco-friendly refurbishment
Following an extensive refurbishment of the Hallfield School Nursery ‘Hallfieldfirst’ during the summer of 2019, the school officially opened its doors to showcase the transformation.
Over 50 members of the Hallfield community gathered at 5.30 pm on Wednesday 9th October to witness the opening ceremony and welcomed Mrs Sheila Sherlock, their long-serving Early Years Governor, to cut the ribbon. She was ably assisted by Georgia-Lee Rowledge who was Hallfieldfirst’s first pupil in 2006. Sheila and Georgia-Lee then proceeded to plant an Acer tree to mark the occasion.
Guests including parents and Governors were invited inside to tour the two-storey building to see for themselves the neutral colour palette complemented by natural wood finishes and toys. Hallfieldfirst Manager, Emma Astle, and Anne Oliver were keen to omit plastics and glaring colours to promote a calming and environmentally-friendly atmosphere for the children and staff.
Mr Keith Morrow, Head Master of Hallfield School said: “I’d like to thank our Governing Body who are committed to the investment in the staff and facilities at Hallfield School. Secondly, to all those involved in turning our plans into reality: to Dave Vanderson and the team at Weedon Architects, to Gary Bodfish and his team at Wattrus and to Sue Bowron and her team here at Hallfield.
The evening was rounded off with canapés and Prosecco in the ‘Oaks’ room, giving guests the chance to mingle with staff and Governors.
There is a Whole School Open Day on Saturday 12th October where you can find out more information on the Hallfieldfirst Nursery provision.
