Politicians pick up paintbrushes as school classrooms get a new look

I saw this headline somewhere and followed the link. “Staff of a primary school will be picking up their paintbrushes over the half-term holidays this week to give a bright new look to the rooms used by reception class pupils. Headteacher Adrian Shorthouse and staff at Scoill Vallajeelt, Braddan, will be joined by parents and by Douglas South MHK Bill Malarkey and his wife Carol, a Douglas Councillor. They will spend the week putting the finishing touches to a refurbishment that will see the reception classrooms fitted out with new equipment, furniture and flooring. It is the latest in a series of community initiatives that are benefiting the school’s 235 pupils.”

Then I looked at the website and I thought you might be interested to see how education is typically conducted on the IOM. Click here.
