New sensory room unveiled at Collier Row school
AN INTERACTIVE room designed to stimulate youngsters emotionally and physically was unveiled at a school yesterday.
A brand new multi sensory room was officially opened at Clockhouse Primary School in Clockhouse Lane, Collier Row on Tuesday January 4.
The School’s headteacher Hafise Nazif said: “It is a really important space for any children who are experiencing any difficulties or those who just need a break.”
The youngsters were able to see their room for the first time and to start using it for quiet time or just for a break.
Work on transforming the empty room started a couple of months ago and the finishing touches were laid to the room before the Christmas holiday.
