Week beginning 14th August

What Has been happening at Winston?

Protecting the School

Preparing for the torrential downpour last Wednesday, Mr Phillips and his team made sure the drains were clear and then loaded up some sand bags to protect the school.  The hall floor has only just been repaired and we did not want to risk another flood.

The railings are finished.

Improvements to the facilities in Maths to provide a better work space.

Progress with the Tennis Courts

The new fencing is almost complete, improving the facility.  The surface has been drilled and the next stage is the base surface.  Students will be able to use this area for a number of sports, extending the usage of this area.  Clubs are also very interested in booking this facility during evenings and at weekends.

Library Progress

The Block Walls are Growing!

Some of the progress made so far.  There is a delay of several weeks as we wait for the steel frame to arrive but by Friday 18th August the main structure of the building should be in place.

Openings through to the English Block

 And from the inside of the English Block!

Site Progress

The Hall Floor

On Monday 31st July the renovation of the hall floor got underway.  The floor was damaged as a result of flooding during a torrential downpour during the evening 15th September 2016.  Having pulled off the layers of varnish, the site team have made every attempt to dry out the floor, to enable the Brazilian hardwood to be saved.  Over this week the wood blocks will be repaired, sanded and varnished.  I look forward to seeing the results.
