Penygarn Primary will be closed to all pupils tomorrow (Thursday) 27th of September.
The old lighting in the school was replaced over the summer with modern energy efficient lighting. There was an issue with one of the new fittings after school today with a light falling through the ceiling.
As a precautionary measure for the safety of pupils, the contractor has been asked to check all the other lights. The contractor will be on site tomorrow and checks are expected to be completed in 1 day. Unfortunately it is not possible to complete those checks with children in the school and it is necessary to close the school, but it is expected to reopen for business as usual on Friday 28th September.
Information will be posted here and on school channels as soon as updates are available and apologise for any inconvenience.
Update - 27/09/2018
Contractors have now completed the checks throughout the school and there are no further issues with the new lights.
The school, nursery and ICC will be fully open tomorrow (28/09/2018).
