We were very honoured to have a visit from the Mayor of Durham, Councillor Jan Blakey. She was accompanied by some of her bodyguards who brought along some of their official regalia.
The children were very interested in the clothes they were wearing, the Mayoral chain and robes but especially in the enormous sword!
Councillor Blakey is a past pupil of our school and is also deputy chair of the governing body of the school.
We thank her and her bodyguards for sparing time in their hectic schedules to come to visit us.
