Children, school staff and funders took part in a topping out ceremony for the new purpose-built campus for St Benedict’s and Mayfield schools last week.
Students from St Benedict’s and Mayfield had the chance to start the installation of the final roof seals, which will mean the building is soon fully watertight.
This is the latest milestone for Campus Whitehaven which is currently being built and due for completion later in the year.
With the roof complete, work is taking place in the interior, with classrooms, corridors and other facilities starting to take shape inside. Work has also begun on landscaping the significant outdoor areas which will become sports facilities and play areas.
Mary Lowrey, Business Director at St Benedict’s, said: “The staff, students and their families are proud to be part of this exciting new Campus. The new facilities in the joint Campus building, in terms of resources, environment, IT infrastructure and sports/ leisure provision can only benefit current and future generations in our community and we are delighted to be part of this.”
