Welshpool High School will be back to full capacity tomorrow, a week after the new term started.
 
Severe damage caused by burst pipes over the Festive Period meant only staff and sixth form returned on time, while GCSE students returned Friday.
 
But following a massive clean-up operation, particularly in the kitchen and canteen where an asbestos ceiling flooded, has been completed meaning that all pupils can return tomorrow (Wednesday).
 
In a letter to parents, Headteacher Mr. Jim Toal, said: “On Wednesday, we will have a limited hot meal service for pupils, but we will not be able to operate our normal cashless card system. Therefore, it is important that your child brings approximately £3 for lunch each day, or an appropriate packed lunch. Pupils who receive a free school meal will be catered for as normal. Whilst we can offer a hot meal at lunchtime, there will be no food served during morning break. We will resume this service as soon as possible.”
 
The cost of the damage is expected to run into tens of thousands of pounds.
