The Mayor's Visit

On Thursday 3rd October we welcomed the Mayor and Mayoress to officially open the school. The children greeted our visitors from the playground as they walked up the ramp. The Mayor said he had never had such a warm welcome at any event he had attended. Other representatives who attended the opening were School Governors, the PTA, our School Council and Team Leaders, representatives from the London Borough of Hillingdon, Thomas Sinden, the building contractor, councillors and local residents. The Mayor and Mayoress visited every classroom, spoke to the children and answered questions. Many of the visitors commended the pupils for their excellent behaviour and were very impressed with how proud the pupils are of their new school.  We should be on the front cover of the next edition of The Hillingdon People magazine.  It was a very exciting day!
