Author to open new school classroom

AUTHOR Eileen Browne will officially open a Somerset school’s foundation unit next week.

The Stepping Stones unit at Rodney Stoke First School is one of very few of its kind in the county.

It includes an extended classroom, kitchen area and an enclosed outside play area, and provides a breakfast club.

Eileen, who has written several children’s books including Handa’s Surprise, will open the unit at 2.30pm on Tuesday.

Cathy Lowe, headteacher, said: “We are delighted that Eileen has agreed to officially open our foundation unit.
