Today was an extremely exciting milestone for the new Jupiter School building on Jupiter Drive. The construction firm Balfour Beatty hosted a Topping Out Ceremony which was attended by Dr Attard, The Rt Hon Michael Penning MP, Miss Aylward, Mrs Gibbs, four Jupiter pupils, governors and members of the Trust.
For centuries, builders have celebrated the moment the building structure reaches it's topmost point. The age-old tradition, originally conceived to bring good luck on a building and ward off evil spirits, is now more commonly recognised as an opportunity to thank the workforce and celebrate the building progress made.
The children chosen to attend this time regularly attend the school childcare clubs. They had a great time and were each able to lay a brick into the structure of the building. Jupiter CFS will be presented with an engraved trowel to commemorate the occasion.
