Pupils, guests and staff welcome the Archbishop.

Dr John Sentamu was given a tour and led an assembly where he answered children’s questions at Friarage Community Primary School, on Friday March 13.

He revealed he had not visited a school in the town before and was very impressed.

The school sang for the Archbishop and he went on to tell them of the value of listening to each other in life.
