THE official opening of St Ninian’s Lower School takes place on Friday.
And on Saturday (October 20) the public can tour the £33.8 million school at Bemahague in Onchan.
Staff and students will be on hand to lead groups around the building from 10am-1pm. There is no need to book.
Education and Children Minister Tim Crookall MHK said: ‘The new school will offer generations of young people a superb environment in which to learn and its formal opening will be a real milestone occasion for education in the Isle of Man.
‘I’d like to pay tribute to the politicians before me who initiated this project, to the DEC staff who have overseen it, to all involved in the design and construction for completing such a massive project on time and within budget, and, not least, to the staff and students of St Ninian’s for making such a seamless transition between the old building and this wonderful new one.’
The school opened to 650 students in years seven to nine (ages 11 to 14) last month and replaces the 118-year-old Park Road building, which is being handed over to the Department of Social Care.
