Swans help Burlais Primary School open its doors
18th September 2015
An eagerly awaited new Swansea school officially opened with members of the first team were there to help.
Accompanying local councillors, Swans club ambassador Lee Trundle, along with Jay Fulton and Mo Barrow, helped the teachers and pupils of Burlais Primary School open their new facility.
The school, located at Cwmbwrla Park, was created following the closure and amalgamation of Manselton and Cwmbwrla Primary Schools back in 2012, but they have only moved in to their new building this month.
Joining in with celebrations, Trundle, Fulton and Barrow faced up to the childrens' questions in a special assembly to mark the event before paying visits to a couple of the classrooms. Asking the trio everything from the amount of goals they've scored to whether they think they'll beat Everton this weekend, the younger players enjoyed the event just as much as the excited pupils.
"The kids were all really happy about the opening and the brand new school will only help with their education," said Fulton.
"It looks really great and seeing the kids smile makes me happy. They're all really happy with the school and it was nice to come down and see them," added Barrow. "Some of the young boys and girls want to be football players so it was good for us to come and give them support."
The community visit comes days before the club starts to visit local organisations and charities to present the latest round of SwansAid winners with their cheques.
