Work underway to transform Whitminster Endowed CofE Primary School
PUPILS are looking forward to being all together under one roof at Whitminster Endowed CofE Primary School.
Until now two of the four classes have been taught in old temporary buildings.
But now those have been demolished and, from September, a two-classroom permanent extension should be open for lessons.
That would finally get everyone together in a single building 30 years after the temporary Elliot demountable rooms were provided, said headteacher Lisa Hinkley.

The £300,000 project is under way thanks to the education department at Gloucestershire County Council.
School funds added £30,000 and Miss Hinkley said: "There is a lot of excitement.
"The children are looking forward to being taught together in one main building."
She added: "The children have been fantastic. They have settled back into school even though there is a building site in the middle of it."
Jackie Hall, the county council's cabinet member for schools, education and skills, visited the school to mark the demolition of the Elliot buildings.
Gloucester Diocese is managing the project. Work is expected to finish by mid-August ahead of celebrations by staff and the 99 pupils.
