After months of building work, a new school learning room with an outside Japanese-inspired water feature has been opened in Ilford.

SS Peter and Paul’s Catholic Primary School, Gordon Road, celebrated the moment with an event attended by the architect of the building and the son of a former teacher whose love for reading spawned a yearly trophy for effort and excellence.

The learning resource centre was the brainchild of headteacher Susan Johnson, who wanted to create much more than a new library.

“By securing the funding required, we saw this as an opportunity to create a bespoke area for many different styles of learning,” she said.

“There is space in the new learning resource centre to take groups for reading tasks, to use the new computer stations or simply share a good story.”

Parish priest Father Andrew Headon was also on hand to cut the ribbon and blessed the new room.
