Christmas comes early

Berwick Hills Primary School, Middlesbrough

1st December 2011

Christmas came early when the pupils of Berwick Hills Primary School in Middlesbrough watched their brand new school being unveiled by main contractor Walter Thompson (Contractors) Ltd and Ivor Goodsite! The £6m primary school was built as part of Middlesbrough Council’s Primary Strategy for Change programme. The opening celebration was led by the children performing music, poems and readings before an audience which included staff, friends of the school, Walter Thompson, the local authority and of course, Ivor Goodsite! A brilliant day was had by all and Ivor was proud to be part of the event.
