Llandaff North Labour Councillors, Cllr Dilwar Ali and Cllr Siobhan Corria are pleased that the sale of Hawthorn Junior School has finally been completed. The building has been sold to Cardiff Steiner School, which is an independent Steiner Waldorf school for children aged 3 to 16. Following the amalgamation of Hawthorn Infant School and Hawthorn Junior School, the junior school building was vacant for three years whilst the community lobbied the Council to ensure the building remained a focul point for the community.
Cllr Dilwar Ali said “It’s fantastic news that the community has been successful in safeguarding the Hawthorn Junior School building. Congratulations to those who campaigned to keep the building”.
Cllr Siobhan Corria said “Hawthorn Junior school has always been at the heart of Llandaff North and the fact that the building has been saved is testament to the residents who fought hard to ensure the building remained. Llandaff North is a very close knit community and both Dilwar and myself are proud to represent the residents. Well done to everyone who campaigned so hard”.
