‘Flag’ ship school receives donation from Bellway

Bellway Homes has donated and installed two new flagpoles at Penllegaer Primary School. The flagpoles will proudly display not only the Welsh flag but also the Green Flag Award that was given to the school for their sound environmental awareness.

A new Bellway housing development, Parc Penderri, is now well into the construction phase and in close proximity to the school. Bellway try to get involved with communities that are local to their developments and Penllegaer Primary School is no exception.

Graham Lewis, Penllegaer Primary School head teacher comments:

“We have always had flag poles outside the school but in recent months they had become unstable and had broken. When I saw that Bellway had come to the area I paid a visit to their team and they suggested the donation of new poles for the school.”

This now gives the school the chance to display the impressive Green Flag Award in recognition of the work they do to monitor energy use and increase recycling levels. The school also has links with international schools and is expecting a visit from a Chinese School next year so the Chinese flag can also be flown at this time.

Mr Lewis continues:

“We want to thank Bellway for their kind donation and we are looking forward to working with them in the future. They have invited our pupils to come up with names for the streets in the Parc Penderri development which is an exciting prospect. In time, we hope that Bellway may also be able to help us facilitate an extension at the school, to ensure our 350 pupils have a high quality learning environment to enjoy.”

Ruth Jones, sales negotiator at Bellway’s Parc Penderri development comments:

“We are always looking for ways to get involved with and help the communities that we become a part of and Penllegaer Primary School is a great opportunity. They have achieved so much in winning the Green Flag Award and it’s only right that they have somewhere to display it.”
