The launch of a £500,000 appeal to help fund a new ChildLine schools service was celebrated by pupils from Penn Wood Primary and Nursery School on Thursday, February 13. Inclusion leader at the Penn Road school, Sonia Davies, said: "As a school we are really supportive of their messages to children on how to keep safe and happy, and where to go to for help should they ever need it. In line with the eco-friendly ethos of Penn Wood Primary and Nursery School (PWS) based in Slough, the school has called in the services of Wernick to produce a building to meet their ‘sustainable’ themed criteria, a building justly called ‘The Tree House’.
The primary aged population is at the highest it has been for 50 years, an increase that is unlikely to subside, with primary schools expected to face a further 18% rise in pupils by 2020. The cedar wooden cladding was matched carefully to the existing building and the roof of the new building was in line with the first floor of the main building. The other primary objective was to ensure that the building conformed to the eco-friendly philosophy of the school.
