Mayor presents Narborough schoolchildren with special coin
Schoolchildren at Narborough Church of England Primary Academy received the mayor of West Norfolk, in one of his final civic visits of the year.
Platinum Jubilee celebrations have started at the school and Harry Humphrey handed out special commemorative Jubilee coins to the children at their school which is run by the Diocese of Norwich Education and Academies Trust (DNEAT) on Tuesday, May, 10.
Mrs Neary, executive headteacher said: "It was lovely for our small family orientated village school to receive the mayor, making our children feel important and helping them with their learning about British values and democracy in the Queen’s Jubilee year."
Harry Humphrey said: "I was delighted to present the special Platinum Jubilee coin, to children at Narborough today.
"Especially satisfying was the interest that the children showed when I explained the significance of the coin and tried to give them an understanding of just how long 70 years is. "I think that the children enjoyed it as did I.
"I also enjoyed the questions I received from the children. This commemorative coin, bearing both the Jubilee logo and the borough’s mayoral crest, was commissioned by the borough council to mark the historic year of the Queen’s 70 years of service, to be offered to all primary children in West Norfolk so that they will have a lasting memento of this historic year.
"I thank the children and staff of the school for the warm welcome I received."
Caileigh, deputy head pupil, from Year 6 said: "It was interesting to find out about the mayor’s job and what they do. I was happy when I received the Jubilee coin."
