Saint Thomas CE Primary School

My school tour guided me to a local school in Stockton Heath village today, I’ve passed St Thomas many times but never had the opportunity to visit until now.

It was really lovely to be greeted by so many polite children wishing me “Good Morning”. The school was very eager for my visit and this was confirmed just by the excitement of the children. It was a lovely assembly and the questions some of the pupils were asking blew my mind.

They were soaking up the information I was giving them like a sponge and this was affirmed by the questions they were asking. Whilst having a coffee meeting last week I was approached by a lady who asked me “Are you Adrian Derbyshire”? I replied “Yes” and she said that her two daughters attend Saint Thomas and that all they could talk about for a week after my visit was just how inspiring the assembly was.

She then brought one of her daughters over to me to have a chat. I have to say, not only was I blown away but also the people whom I was having a meeting with were to. Even though my visit had been 7 weeks ago, this young girl remembered word for word what I had been saying and it really made me think just how important my Hate Crime, Disability Awareness, Going the extra mile hand cycle campaign is.
