Visit of Revd David Cowie to St Peter’s Primary School, Wymondham
The recently appointed Priest-in-Charge, Revd David Cowie visited the Class 3 pupils at Wymondham St Peter’s CE Primary School to answer questions about Christianity. The children had previously thought of questions they would like to ask him, including why he wanted to become a vicar and what inspired him to be a Christian. They also asked questions about the bible and the Christian church. Grace in Year 5 commented, “It was very educational because we learnt about God and it was very interesting because Revd David was happy to share everything he knew about God.”
On Thursday 28th September, the school held its annual Harvest Festival at St Peter’s Church, Wymondham, and generously donated both fresh and dried produce. This was the first service for the children that Revd David Cowie officiated at and he commented how much it had cheered him to see so many children in the church.
In school, the pupils at Wymondham St Peter’s learn about different religions in their RE lessons. Assistant head teacher, Mrs Alyson Chambers, is a Leading RE teacher and supports other schools across the county.
After a lovely summer break it was great to see our children returning for a fresh start the new academic year. Whilst our youngest children are at the start of their new school lives, it was also pleasing to hear about those who left us in July and we wish them well. Now we welcome our Reception children to what I hope will be a happy, successful and rewarding time at St Peter‟s. For the children who have returned for a new school year, this is a good time to set their sights on being as ambitious as possible during a year of interesting and active opportunities.
We are looking forward to seeing everyone at our Fete on Saturday. The PTA have worked really hard to make the Fete a success, once again, and the result is that we are able to provide extended opportunities for all our children at little or no cost, for example: school trips, Christmas parties, pantomimes etc. In addition, they fund IT equipment; additional classroom resources; playground benches and much more besides. Please come along and show your support in whatever way you can J
