Teacher Training Day - Friday 17th February 2017 - School is closed to Students
Gym Refurbishment & The New Library
The much awaited and brand new ‘Library’ is ready and will be functional in the New Year after the school holidays. Pupils and staff at Selly Park are greatly excited to see the library operational. After three months of rigorous hard work by the contractors the new library is ready to be used and has a lot of facilities.
The building houses the library downstairs with a capacity of 10,000 books. Our librarians Mrs Clarke and Miss Darwood will be overseeing and managing the library. The building has three rooms upstairs. One of the rooms has an extendable wall that can be folded as and when needed and the room space enlarged for up to 100 pupils at the same time. This space then becomes a very flexible and useful space. The two other rooms will be used as classrooms.
The books and other resources are in preparation for transit from their existing shelves in the old library to the new library. The members of the School Council are helping in packing and getting things ready for the move. A part of the old gym has been kept intact and the space wisely used for treadmills and other fitness equipment. This will facilitate the use of the room for PE lessons.
With the work being completed up by the contractors our car park has opened up to its actual capacity as before. We will encourage all the pupils to make the most of the library.
