Warwick Davis opens new children’s learning center
On Monday, a brand new learning center was opened at Bourne Westfield Primary Academy in Lincolnshire, and to open it in style, the pupils received a visit from a very special guest. Harry Potter star Warwick Davis made an appearance at the school to cut the red ribbon and officially open what is now known as the Mezzo Center.
While visiting the school, Davis gave a speech to all of its children about being different – this was in aid of a special week that the school was holding, where they had been celebrating differences and individuality, trying to discover each pupil’s unique talent. About his appearance, Elaine Radley – headteacher – said,
It was great to have Warwick Davis visit the school; he gave an assembly to the whole school about his career and how its good to be different. The children had lots of questions for him, and he even taught them how to do some Harry Potter magic.
Davis also visited one of the school’s classes in order to have a chat with its pupils.
The Mezzo Centre is a two-story building jam-packed with facilities: learning spaces for the children downstairs and function rooms for the staff upstairs. The center was created in the hopes of helping children with their learning process, a way for it to be more engaging as they do so.
A donation of £11,500 was given to help build said center by the Bourne Education Foundation (which is part of Bourne United charities). The headteacher gushed that “it is a great inspirational learning space, and we couldn’t have done it without the help of the sponsors.”
