PUPILS are set to become computer whizzes after their school’s ICT suite was opened.
Roberta Blackman-Woods, MP for Durham City, was on hand to officially open the new unit at West Rainton Primary School
The centre has top-of-the-range equipment, which will serve pupils for years to come.
The school also launched its new website, a collaborative project providing news updates, calendars of events and important information about the school to pupils and parents.
Ms Blackman-Woods said: “I was delighted to officially open their new ICT unit and be there at the launch of their fantastic website with pupils and staff from West Rainton Primary. They were obviously very pleased with the new facilities.
“I was extremely impressed by how the school is constantly updating and improving and the children were a delight to talk to.”
After the official opening, she was given the difficult task of judging the annual Easter egg competition, with entries ranging from baby chicks, Abba and Mr T to Harry Potter.
