Deputy Mayor Councillor Richard Jones recently visited Perryfields Primary School to open its newly named Rainbow Diner.

The Oldbury school is really embracing all the colours of the rainbow to represent diversity and acceptance and to honour the work of the NHS.

The name of the diner was decided by a competition in which all pupils put a suggestion forward. The winner was Chase from Year 2 who met the Deputy Mayor and was then involved in the opening ceremony by cutting the ribbon with Councillor Jones.

Deputy Mayor Councillor Richard Jones said: “It was great to meet the children and staff and be involved in the naming ceremony of this wonderful diner. Chase really hit the mark by suggesting the rainbow theme and it shows that everyone however young or old really respects the work of our NHS.”

Headteacher Mrs Terry Jones said: “We were honoured to have the Deputy Mayor attend our school to officially open the Rainbow Diner on his first engagement since lockdown ending.”

Rainbows have been a feature of Perryfields since expanding to a two form entry school eight years ago. There are a number of rainbow features throughout the school including the staircase and class names.
