The plans for the proposed Science and Technology Block will be available to view in the school’s foyer from Tuesday 22 to Friday 25 September.
The two floor extension will provide science laboratories, workshops and classrooms, together with a large flexible space linking it to the existing school building.
The proposal develops a sustainable, low carbon building, which complements and inspires the science and technology classes it will accommodate.
It is designed around a central spine which will provide collaborative teaching and study areas, serving as break-out spaces from the adjacent teaching areas. The building would be built on the west of the school and face Douglas Road.
Thank you so much to everyone who attended the protest today against the closure of the Isle of Man Bank in Peel. Two petitions, digital and handwritten were collated, totalling around 3000 signatures.
Along with Alan Jones, the Chair of the Commissioners, we will ask to meet with Stuart Chivers, the Head of Local Banking, to present the petitions.
You can still write to the bank to let your views be heard at:
Manx Utilities have announced that they will be laying a new water main and sewers on East Quay, Peel commencing 7 September into the New Year.
This is much welcome news as it both provides the necessary infrastructure for the sewage system as well as being the preliminary stage in the reconstruction of badly failing East Quay. The budget for East Quay reconstruction was approved in this year’s budget and includes the highway and footpaths. In addition, flood protection work is also planned for East Quay.
Whilst the work is undertaken to upgrade the infrastructure, the route will be closed to through-traffic although each end of the 60m working area will be accessible.
This working area will move south along the Quay as work progresses. There will be space at each end for cars and vans to turn and it will be possible for pedestrians to walk through the work area. The quayside will be accessible for marine operations.
