Floods Delay Start of Term at School
7:01am 7th January 2013
A Cornish school hit by floods is delaying the start of term.
Children at St Nicolas Church of England in Downderry will not go back till Wednesday.
All but one room ended up under water, meaning some parts could remain no go for weeks.
Headteacher Lee Rounce said: "While the majority of children will be able to return to the school on 9th January, the Class 1 (reception) children will be relocated to St Nicolas Church while major repairs are carried out to the floor of their classroom.
"The Pre-School will continue to run for their normal sessions alongside the reception class in the church and we would particularly like to thank the staff and committee of the Pre-School for their assistance.
"As it will take some time to replace carpets, furnishings and other equipment., some other areas of the school may also need to remain ‘out of bounds’ for the first few weeks. The health and safety of the children remains our primary concern and we appreciate the patience of parents in this matter."
