Headteacher Johnny Culley welcomes Lord Cowdray

EASEBOURNE Primary School’s first ever ‘community week’ was given a special significance with a visit from its new patron Lord Cowdray.

Headteacher Johnny Culley said: “Lord Cowdray has very kindly agreed to become the school’s patron, in light of the longstanding links between the school and the Cowdray estate and family. We hope the partnership will, over time, develop stronger significance. It will certainly enrich the children’s school experience at Easebourne and we are grateful for this formal acknowledgement of his interest in the school.”

Other highlights of the week included activities with artists and musicians, the South Downs National Park and the National Trust. The first joint concert with Midhurst Primary School Concert was held at the Memorial Hall and music teacher, Katie Stevens led a session for the community.

Pupils also worked with members of St Mary’s Church congregation producing a display board making it clear it was a Church of England school with the support of the church community and vicar, The Rev Derek Welsman.
