Official Opening of our Reflection Garden and publicity
We had a wonderful morning on Monday when Bishop James Bell visited our school to officially open and bless our Reflection Garden. He led our assembly and looked around school. He thoroughly enjoyed meeting the children and was very impressed by their excellent manners and warm welcome. The Official opening of our Reflection Garden by Bishop James Bell is featured on the diocesan website:
You can access this link on the homepage of our school website. We are also featured on the Northern Echo website and in the Darlington and Stockton Times newspaper this week. We have uploaded some photographs to the gallery of our school website.
