Staff at Poulner Junior School worked tirelessly to transform their school over the summer holidays, especially the library, which formed a major part of the improvements.
The ‘new look’ library was officially opened by visiting poet James Carter and the Mayor of Ringwood, Cllr Tim Ward, with parents and children joining in with the celebrations. A children’s competition to win lunch and a VIP question time experience with James Carter also took place.
Headteacher, Jo Walker, who joined the school in April 2017, instigated the improvements having done the same when head of her previous school in Chandler’s Ford. She explained the reason for the changes, ”Poulner is a school that is at the heart of the community and children here deserve up-to-date facilities to learn in, teachers who inspire and the library was a key part to this.”
Now a vibrant and inspiring learning space, the library includes eight brand new PCs.
“The children’s and parents’ reactions to the changes have been extremely positive and there is a real buzz about the school,” said Mrs Walker.
The library renovation has been part of a bigger project including a new IT computer suite and a secure and welcoming entrance area. A new website is also under construction.
