FOURTEEN months after 130 pupils and staff first started using the new £6.8 million Douglas Primary School, an official opening ceremony saw primary and nursery youngsters in fine voice.

The whole school sang Be Our Guest before Primary 1 pupils recited A Perfect Setting – a poem about the new school – and P3-5 gave a fantastic rendition of We’re All in this Together from High School Musical.

Head teacher Stewart Troop said: “Our new school is fantastic.”
