Smart New Signs

09 October 2019

Everyone has noticed the smart new signs outside John Rankin but where did they come from?

After the Junior office closed, the school had a problem with deliveries. It needed a way to show people who to contact if the gates were closed.

But the school could not pay for new signs because it was spending all its money on resources for the pupils. So a local estate agent, Hillier & Wilson, agreed to pay £3,500 to sponsor the signs.

The children were asked to come up with a design they liked. Now there are no problems with deliveries and they look really nice.
