On Tuesday 13th November I attended an open afternoon event at Alice Ingham School Smallbridge to see the Mayor and Mayoress officially open the schools outdoor classroom facility.
First of all we were treated to the children singing in the main hall (which always brings a lump to my throat) then we were given a tour of all the classrooms to see the children at work and have a chat with them about the various subjects they were doing. They were so thrilled at meeting the Mayor and Mayoress and seeing up close those grand chains, and I must say Peter and Helen Evans (Mayor and Mayoress) just will not be rushed, they really enjoy these visits and time just seems to stand still, they are such naturals with the children.
We then went outside to where all the school had assembled with their teachers, parents and school governers (of which I am one) at the garden ready for the Mayor to cut the ribbon and officially open - which was greeted by a large round of applause and cheers by all present.
To round this lovely event off we had a special treat in the hall of tea/coffee and the most delicious home made cakes.
What a lovely day, what a pleasure it is to attend such special events.
Thank you children and teachers at Alice Ingham School.
