john paul ii primary school
John Paul II Primary School is situated in the most socially-deprived ward of the UK. This community have rarely experienced the physical manifestation of state intervention in changing the lives of people. However, this new addition has not only become a new beacon of hope, but has helped the community set new standards and higher its expectations. It is hoped that this project will put future capital works programs under pressure to deliver to the same high standard. John Paul II Primary School was recently awarded the Community Benefit Award at the 2018 RICS awards ceremony held in La Mon Hotel.
Judges said that generations of unemployment, sectarian strife and poverty have been alleviated by the stability and optimism of John Paul II Primary School. They added that its dedication to and engagement with parents and families has been greatly enhanced and amplified thanks to the modest investment in this block with four new classrooms.
