A warm welcome from pupils of The Delce Junior School

My second visit today was to the Delce Junior School in Rochester where I was escorted around the school by five of the School Prefects. It was a great experience being able to talk to the pupils and to observe the lessons taking part throughout the school. Of particular interest was the chess club which I saw in action where the teacher was taking on three pupils at once in a game!

I was also welcomed by the Head Teacher Karen Wright who accompanied me throughout the tour giving me a history of the school, which I know from quite some way back when members of my family attend the school when it was first built.

The photograph above shows me with the Head Teacher.

Here is some information on the school, taken from their website
