Our school has been planning new buildings for about two years. This has caused great interest, but the rules of commercial confidentiality meant we couldn't show our students any detailed designs. Finally, in May, the architects' drawings were put on display in the foyer. Among the students' questions were: "Why are there four lifts?" (elevations), "Why do we need a room for plants?"and "Will it be finished by September?" We pay pound;30 for each Soundbite we publish.
