Greystone Bridge goes green for schools

by Emily Maguire

As the academic year draws to a close, the Greystone Bridge will be lit in green in recognition the hard work of Knowsley’s teachers, school support staff, pupils and parents in what has been a challenging year.

Through lockdowns, returning to the classroom and periods of self-isolation, schools and parents have worked hard to keep Knowsley’s children and young people safe, supported and on track with their education.

Cllr Margaret Harvey, Cabinet Member for Children’s Services said. “We close this academic year full of hope that the next one will not have quite so many challenges and whilst it has been hard, schools, pupils and families in our borough have demonstrated extraordinary flexibility, perseverance and resilience in the face of the COVID pandemic.

On Thursday we will light the Greystone bridge in green as a mark of thanks for all of your hard work and support throughout this year and we wish all of you a safe and happy summer.”

Throughout the last week of term, pupils and staff at schools across the borough have enjoyed a ‘pizza party’, with more than 18,000 pizzas provided free of charge by the Knowsley Council’s School Meals service.
