No Delay To New School Opening

New Five Islands School, due to open in September

The Five Islands School will open as planned on 7th September.

Headteacher Bryce Wilby says there’s been no change to the official timeline but he’s aware that the rumour mill has been on overdrive and during a recent trip to the supermarket he says three islanders asked him whether the opening had been delayed.

Bryce says if you look at the site it seems that there is a lot to do so the comments may come from people who have never been involved in this sort of project before.

He met with Kier Western personnel last Wednesday and they say it remains on schedule.
