EAR to ear grins were abundant when students arrived for their first day at Twin Rivers.
It was a seamless transition for what could have been a headache for staff and students.
Moving children from their old, familiar schools into an unfamiliar building was a challenge, but it was one the Twin Rivers staff took in their stride.
Students and their families were welcomed into the new building and given a tour of the modern facility.
Parents Suzanne Sandercock and Christine Millen arrived at the new school last month not sure what to expect.
But once they entered Suzanne, Christine and the children couldn’t believe the generous space and the fresh feeling the new building offered.
Suzanne said the transition had been easy for her two children.
“The staff have made it really easy. They made it stress free for the kids and helped them to get back into their routine,” she said.
“The kids were extremely excited to get in after waiting such a long time for it all to happen.’’
Christine said she loved the location of the new school and the extra space.
“There’s plenty of space out the front for pick up and drop off. That makes life a lot easier for the parents,” she said.
“And inside the school is huge. I love the open plan design and I think the kids will benefit from it.
“It’s great for the community to have our modern school finally open.”
