SOUTH Gloucestershire Council has invested £2 million in upgrades at 18 schools. A number of projects have been completed over the year, from adding and adapting classrooms to upgrading heating systems to cope with the colder winter months. Among the schools to benefit is Cherry Garden Primary in Bitton, which has a new boiler.
Councillor Toby Savage, cabinet member responsible for schools, said: “Replacing old boilers and roofing is helping to reduce schools’ running costs and forms part of our ongoing programme of investment to create safe, high quality learning environments for all our children. The extra classrooms are also easing the pressure on our over-subscribed schools.”
