Celebrations at Dereham Church of England Junior Academy

Posted on 10 March 2016

Bishop Graham James and pupils from Dereham Church of England Junior Academy

Today the pupils, staff, governors and visitors all came together with Bishop Graham James for a blessing and celebration of a new beginning in the life of the school. There have been a number of changes since November when the school became an academy and today several pupils proudly wore their new purple school uniform. Guests joined the staff and pupils in song and prayers and were treated to a splendid demonstration of hand bell ringing, along with school prayers especially written by the children. The school council joined visitors afterwards for tea and refreshments and were very good ambassadors for the academy.
