The Bishop of Durham, The Right Reverend Paul Butler worships with us!

1st January 2017

On the 31st January the Bishop of Durham; The Right Reverend Paul Butler, arrived at our school to mark the 50th anniversary of teaching children in our school building.

We welcomed him with a special worship themed on thankfulness and belonging, each class contributed by sharing a significant memory from their time in school.

The Bishop was then invited into maple class. We asked him questions about his life and work. Children looked on intently as the Bishop tried on his robes. With each layer he put on he explained the purpose for the each item of clothing.  The Bishop also told us about how he visits the House of Lords. He explained to us that he was visiting the very next day and how he votes and objects to laws.
