HARLOW MP Robert Halfon visited Little Parndon Primary Academy recently to officially open the new library and sensory room.
The new library has been transformed from a former classroom into an exciting space with images depicting the fictional worlds of Oz and Narnia decorating the walls.
Mr Halfon was impressed with the new facility and spoke to the children during his visit.
He said: “Having a beautiful room like this is wonderful and you are very lucky.”
Head of school Kirstie Clark is also happy with the change.
She said: “The new library has been completely transformed and looks fantastic.”
The old library has been converted into a sensory room for children with special educational needs and disabilities. It is designed to give these children as well as others the space and time to explore their senses.
Ms Clark said: “Now, we have a facility to give children what they need in school. It’s a quiet space which can be used by all children to reflect and have time to themselves.”
Mr Halfon said: “The sensory room will make such a difference to a whole lot of children with difficulties. It’s a beautiful place.”
Having answered children’s questions about his role in Parliament and discussed their favourite books, Mr Halfon said: “To come to a school like this makes you feel inspired. What is going on here is a miracle. I go to schools a lot, but the children here are so intelligent.”
