Salford school seeing double with £3m plan

A £3.5 million rebuilding project will enable the Salford Chasidic community’s oldest school to double its capacity.

The private Chinuch Norim Primary is to construct a four-storey complex on the site of its 50-year-old building.

Two-hundred parents and community members gathered on Sunday for the laying of the cornerstone

ceremony.

Planning permission was granted three years ago to replace the current premises, which accommodate 250 pupils.

Headmaster Rabbi Yehoshua Waldman says the project should be completed in 18 months and the school will continue to function during the building work.
