Merton Academy’s New Building

On Monday 24th February we were invited to join members of the School Council, Head Teacher, Governors and Staff from the construction firm, Willmott Dixon Construction Ltd to record the handing over of the keys to the new Foundation and Year One building at Merton Primary Academy. We also recorded where a time capsule had been buried in front of the new building this year to be opened in 2073 which will be the 100th anniversary of the school’s opening.

Our picture above shows Mrs Shelagh Thompson with the children of the School Council in front of the plaque that records the location of the time capsule.

Our other picture below, shows Mrs Shelagh Thompson with Mrs Karen Lock, Head of the school’s Governors and three school council members receiving the keys from Mr Wayne Mears, Site Manager for Willmott Dixon Construction Ltd group who built the new building.
