THE smiles on the faces of QM pupils said it all as the KS1 playground opened yesterday after 15 months of building and landscaping at the school.
Children in both KS1 and KS2 now have stunning new play areas, climbing equipment and a state-of-the-art sports pitch.
Our pupils with special educational needs also have the brilliant new facilities of The Pavilion, thanks to the £6m site development carried out by Hammersmith and Fulham Council.
In return QM handed over land at the rear of the school to the council, which has enabled the building of the Stephen Wilshire Centre for children and young people in the borough with disabilities.
Acting Headteacher Phoebe du Parcq said: “It was a joyous moment to see the children finally get to use both playgrounds. I couldn’t be prouder of the wonderful facilities and the offer we now have for QM pupils today and in the future.
“This has been a truly exciting project with the council which delivers for all children at Queen’s Manor and for disabled children and their families across the borough.”
