Primary school pupils are making the most of an extension to their school that will be officially opened by former Chief Minister Tony Brown tomorrow.

Members of the public will be able to inspect the new facilities at Victoria Road primary school in Castletown, that include new classrooms and a multi-purpose hall, from 3pm, ahead of the unveiling of a plaque by Mr Brown at 3.30pm.

Acting head teacher Ian Postlethwaite said: 'We are all delighted with our fabulous new hall. It has provided the children and staff with many more opportunities in terms of physical, creative and personal development and provided an excellent performance space.
'The children were in awe when they saw the hall for the first time.'

As an MHK, Tony Brown represented Castletown for 30 years and is a former pupil of Victoria Road school. He said: 'I was very much involved, along wiht the other governors, in developing and progressing the scheme. I am absolutely delighted to have been invited to open the extension. The facilities provided by the extension are a fabulous asset to the school and, most importantly, provide excellent new provisions for the pupils, the staff and Castletown as a whole.'
