This is very sad indeed.

Unlike other primary schools in the area that will not be mentioned, what they were doing to develop the old Monson building was fantastic. A great combination of sensitive refurbishment, and contemporary additions. I was really looking forward to seeing it finished.

I sincerely hope that the damage was not too drastic.
