Cardiff primary school partially re-open after flood

A Cardiff school is to partially re-open on Wednesday after being closed for two days following flooding caused by vandals during the Easter break.

The head of St Bernadette's Catholic Primary School in Pentwyn said a water tank on the school roof had been "breached" causing "extensive damage".

It will re-open on 11 May for years two, three, and six.

Packed lunches will be provided for those who have school dinners. It is hoped all pupils can return by 16 May.

The school said packed lunches would be provided for those who receive school dinners because the kitchen remained out of action.

The hall ceiling was "destroyed" and areas of the school were covered with a couple of inches of water.

Head teacher Karen Ash said areas throughout the school had been damaged, describing it as a "terrible blow".

It is hoped parents will be further updated by the end of the week.
