EVERYONE is being given the chance to play their part in determining the name of a new school.
Governors, teachers, parents and pupils, past or present of two Connah’s Quay schools are being asked for ideas for naming a brand new school in the town.
The new £7.5million development will replace Custom House Lane Junior School and Dee Road Infants School and is due to open in September 2012.
Kate Fox-Parry, headteacher designate, said: “We are encouraging people to play a part in creating Connah's Quay’s history.
“Please use your imagination and historical knowledge to create and design a name, a uniform, an emblem and a motto for our new school.”
Members of the school community will also be invited to forward their ideas for an emblem, motto and pupils’ uniform.
The new single storey school is being built by Read Construction Holdings Ltd, of Brymbo, on the existing school playing fields.
It will accommodate 360 primary and 30 nursery pupils.
Cllr Bernie Attridge, chairman of the temporary governing body for the school, said:
“These are exciting times for the whole school community.
“I look forward to receiving the ideas of our children and families and would encourage people to get involved.”
Entry forms are available from either school. Closing date is September 9.
