Pupils at St Norbert’s Catholic Primary School in Spalding were visited by the new Bishop of Nottingham, the Right Reverend Patrick McKinney.
The Bishop came to celebrate a Mass as part of the official opening of the new outdoor learning area that has been built. The area has an outdoor classroom, bird hide, various benches and seating and animal nesting areas and was paid for after fundraising by the dedicated Friends of the School and a grant from the National Lottery Funding.
The outdoor area has been named ‘Window to God’s Wonderful World’.
As part of the Mass, which have the theme ‘All of God’s Creation’, the Bishop blessed the outdoor learning area, before being presented with a birthday card, cake and a chorus of ‘Happy Birthday’ as he was celebrating his birthday over the weekend he was in Spalding.
The Bishop was particularly impressed by the children’s enthusiasm and singing during the Mass.
