The Grand Opening

Saturday 17th September

The Grand Opening of the new St John’s Angell Town C of E Primary School.

The Bishop of Southwark officially opened our new school in Angell Town by unveiling a plaque and an original artwork set outside the school’s main entrance.

The afternoon was a chance to tour the school and see St John’s pupil’s dancing and singing. Dignitaries, including Baronness Floella Benjamin and local MP, Helen Hayes, wished the school every success for the future and were very impressed by the new building and the children.

The community garden, near the school, was blessed by the Bishop of Southwark before he opened the school at the main entrance. The children planted flowers in the plant pots in the entrance area.

There was a high tea for all after the official opening.
