Staff and pupils at Buckholme Towers to thank community for help after devastating fire
DEVASTATED by a fire in March, a rebuilt Poole school is opening its doors to say thank you to the community.
Buckholme Towers School and Nursery in Commercial Road, Lower Parkstone wants to thank all who rallied round to help staff and pupils in the aftermath.
It plans two open events in October, an official opening attended by Mayor, Cllr Phil Eades, and a second event for parents to find out more about the school.
Iain Robertson, headmaster, is encouraging people to attend the events so that he can personally thank them for their support and to mark this significant occasion.
“It was nothing short of a miracle to open Buckholme within 48 hours of the fire and we wouldn’t have been able to do it without the help and support from members of the local community,” he said.
“Now that the new term is well underway we wanted to express our thanks to those who supported us and show them how well the pupils are settling into their new school.
“Buckholme has been part of the Parkstone community since 1939 and we are proud to be able to showcase this fantastic new building and to continue pupils’ successes well into the future,” he said.
On Friday, October 11, from 5pm to 6.30pm, people and businesses will get the chance to have a guided tour of the new building and meet the headmaster and teaching staff. The mayor will cut a ribbon to officially mark the opening.
On Saturday, October 12, the school will be open to parents from 10am to 12noon.
The school educates children from two years and nine months up to 11.
The average class size is 14 and in 2012 the school achieved a 100 per cent pass rate for entry to grammar school.
