Bishop Pat and Sr Patricia visit St Mary's


We had an exciting day when two special visitors decided to call in to see everyone at St Mary’s. Sr Patricia travelled down from the North East to look around the school. She visits all her schools (Sisters of Mercy) at least once per year and thoroughly enjoys meeting the children and reading their work. As a former Headteacher, Sr Patricia knows what is important in a primary school and quickly settled back into her old role-asking why they had written something and explain that to me!

In the afternoon, Bishop Pat Lynch came on site. He was visiting Christchurch parish and wanted to see St Mary’s. Bishop Pat thoroughly enjoyed meeting children and staff. There were lots of questions so I think he probably wanted a rest after leaving us!
