Braidside: The Big Move!

31st Jul 2020

What a week we have had moving out of the old premises into our brand new school! Any initial feelings of anticipation and nervousness; that all would go according to plan; have been replaced by excitement, relief and joy.

In four days all of the old resources, equipment and furniture were removed and placed in the classrooms and offices, resource spaces and multi-purpose rooms. We are fortunate that we now have additional rooms and storage space that we didn't have in the past. Now the big task ahead is to find a home for everything that has accumulated over 30 years. We are hugely grateful to Swift Shift Removals, who did an incredible job with enthusiasm and patience, going the extra mile to ensure everything was moved with care. 

We have also seen the arrival of new furniture including pupil desks, chairs, teachers' desks, chairs, bookcases and more classroom storage (you can never have too much storage in a school!).

Next week will see the delivery of some new office furniture and an opportunity to continue with the unpacking that has just begun. 

A few photos from this busy week are below. Even though the move is an immense undertaking, there have been many happy, smiling faces around the school.

Thank you for all the well wishes and messages we have received. It has been a momentous week.
