»Pupils, staff and parents have celebrated the completion of work to revitalise a 105 year-old primary school.

Crockenhill School, The Green, Crockenhill, Swanley, has had four new classrooms, a music room, staff room and a new administration block built.

Headteacher Sue Norwell said: “In some areas it feels like an entirely new school while preserving the traditional feel of a much-loved primary right at the centre of a community it has served for more than 100 years,”

To celebrate the work 200 red balloons were released, a willow tree was planted and the students performed a specially-composed song.
