Students from St Benedict’s school have had the pleasure of a visit from HRH The Princess Royal today, as part of the Campus Whitehaven official opening.
The Princess Royal unveiled a plaque to officially open Campus Whitehaven, and was then presented with flowers by students. She was also taken on a tour of the new site, which includes Mayfield School as well as St Benedict’s School.
The tour of St Benedict’s site included a performance of their recent Rock Challenge piece, as well as visiting some lessons and the new sports facilities and winter gardens area.
Steve Bridgman, Acting Headteacher at St Benedict’s, said:
“It has been a pleasure to welcome all of our guests to St Benedict’s today. It was a great opportunity for our students and staff to show off their new school and be able to show how we can share them with the local community.”
John McQuirk, Chair of Governors at St Benedict’s, said:
“This was a fantastic way to officially open Campus Whitehaven. It was an honour to showcase our new facilities to all of our special guests.”
