We are really delighted that our boilers are installed and at long last we have agreement from KCC that we could install the gas pipe! This has taken almost 26 weeks to agree. The gas pipe will be going in next week and by the end of the week our meters and gas boilers should be connected up and we should have heating. I know it’s really cold at the moment in part of the school and we are asking children to dress up warm with an extra vest or T-shirt under their school uniform.
We are trying to cheer them up with hot chocolate from time to time and making every effort to keep the school open even though at times it is quite chilly in some of the classrooms. There are extra warm-up exercises in the morning and I know staff will appreciate every effort parents are making to ensure the children are at school. If it does become too cold we have heating in the hall and we can move our children there for their lessons in the short time that we are waiting for these connections to happen.
