Cowling Primary School headteacher welcomes new facilities
8:00am Monday 30th September 2013 in News
The new school year brought a new look for Cowling Primary as builders moved out and a new headteacher moved in.
Work to renovate the Victorian Gill Lane building was completed during the summer and the school now boasts a modern sports floor in the hall.
The flooring in class one and the library were also modernised while painters decorated Liz Antal’s class ensuring the youngest children benefit from bright, welcoming surroundings.
Sue Marshall, an advanced skills teacher, was appointed headteacher following the retirement of Steven Smith.
She told the Herald: “The school looks fantastic and the modernisation of the hall has provided us with wonderful facilities for gymnastics, dance, games and whole school events.
“I feel very proud and privileged to lead Cowling primary at such an exciting time.
“It is an aspirational school and I have been made to feel very welcome by all the pupils, staff and parents.
“I am passionately committed to providing the very best education for our pupils.
“It is my aim to ensure that every child at Cowling thrives and looks back on their primary years with very happy memories of fun-packed days filled with the excitement of discovering something new about the world around them.”
