To mark the occasion, families, neighbours and the community enjoyed a day of celebrations with fun, free activities including face painting, bouncy castles and partyman AJ. Grays Town Band welcomed the crowds with a fantastic performance and the school choir performed for the VIP guests.
Cllr Oliver Gerrish, Thurrock Council’s Portfolio Holder for Education said:
“The opening of this school symbolises the effectiveness of joint working between our partners, colleagues and the admirable team at the school which is superbly led by Christina Pumfrey.
“Pupils will learn in a modern and safe environment which further enforces our vision of creating a great place for learning and opportunity”.
Cllr Gupta commented: “How wonderful it is to see families and pupils of the school here today enjoying the celebrations.
“Education should be at the top of everyone’s agendas and everybody involved should take great pride in knowing they are providing something wonderful for the community”.
