Representatives from the 156 schools in the Diocese of Hexham and Newcastle celebrated the installation of Bishop Robert Byrne as the fourteenth bishop of Hexham and Newcastle at the Cathedral Church of St. Mary in Newcastle.
Freya and Will from Y6 represented St. Bede’s South Shields. Freya had the special privilege of being one of the 12 pupils chosen to read at this very special service; she rose to the occasion and read beautifully. It was a wonderful occasion and one which the children and I will treasure and remember.
The bishop was presented with a book of welcome to which each school had contributed. Eva from Y6 designed the page of welcome for St. Bede’s School. Well done to Eva for her beautiful design.
