School celebrates forty years anniversary

12 June 2018

Horsford Church of England VA Primary School celebrated 40 years of their official opening of their school on Mill Lane on Wednesday 6 June with a visit by the Bishop of Norwich, the Rt Revd Graham James.

He greeted the children at Holt Road in a worship assembly and led prayers before he moved on to Mill Lane for the official ceremony.

It was lovely to welcome back Mr Slack and Mrs Browning, who were previous headteacher and class teacher respectively, along with our Chair of Governors, Judy Leggett, Brian Blythe from the Horsford Parish Council and Revd Garry from our Open the Book team.

Some of our Year 5 and 6 children shared their prayers with us and the Bishop and Reverend Margaret led the worship. It was a memorable morning looking back at old photos and reminiscing about the changes that have taken place at Mill Lane over the last 40 years.

Here is one of the prayers by a Year 6 pupil.

Dear God,

Thank you for all of the lovely teachers who have
taught at our school. People may not say it all of the
time but they are all very grateful for our school.
Please help all of our teachers to stay healthy and achieve
great things with our school. Thank you for our lovely
lessons, like English and maths. Help our school keep
producing great children filled with wisdom and
knowledge. Let us have an amazing anniversary
and to keep going on through the years.
