The new STEM centre at St Helen’s School in Northwood is completed and awaits its grand opening this summer.
As part of the STEM provision, the building will help students in the areas of science, technology, engineering and mathematics and will provide a series of new classrooms and facilities.
Nadia Fulgoni, head of marketing at the school said that after a slight hold up in the building’s completion due to lockdown they are hoping to open the building in July, depending on the COVID-19 restrictions.
She said: “The building is an investment into the children’s learning. We are absolutely delighted, it’s a beautiful building but it won’t be formally open until July.”
The formal opening in July is set to be attended by high profile guest, Dr Anne-Marie Imafidon, MBE, a keynote speaker, presenter and co-founder of the award-winning social enterprise, Stemettes.
A recognised and respected thought-leader in the tech space and trustee at the Institute for the Future of Work, Anne-Marie has spoken across the globe for some of the world’s biggest digital companies and conferences, including Facebook, ASOS, Google, SXSW and Founders Forum.
The centre is due to be opened in July, but this is provisional in terms of government guidelines surrounding the COVID-19 pandemic.
