VISITORS TO ASHURST SCHOOL
by the Junior class
 

Father Neil Roberts is a very good friend to Ashurst school, he is our vicar. He teaches people about God and Jesus.  He teaches other schools about God and Jesus too.  He comes every week to take assembly.

One of our very special guests is Mr Cham from Kotukala School in The Gambia.  Mr Cham came to spend several weeks with us in the Spring Term 2012, we loved learning about life in Africa and hope he comes back to visit very soon.

Noel Dumbrell used to be a pupil at Ashurst and comes back to tell us about his evacuee years.  He loves music and has even written a song about Ashurst.

Mr. Dumbrell lived in Ashurst and came to school in 1937.  He returned again to teach us about World War Two. He told us about when there was an air raid shelter near the church but the mums did not want their children to go that far, so he helped build an air raid shelter in a field opposite the school.  The picture on the right shows Mr. Dumbrell with his drums and harmonica, he enjoys playing music.

 

P.C. Keeley is a good friend as well, she is a Police Officer who comes into Ashurst to teach us about citizenship.  Recently she brought along a Police car to show us and taught us about fingerprinting as well as stranger danger. 
Our dear friend Sir Graham was a regular visitor to Ashurst

Lots of local residents come along to Ashurst School events such as Sports Day, Leavers Services and of course the Christmas Plays.  We have lots of kind neighbours many of them have farmland surrounding the school.  Mrs Jessie lives on a local farm, she is one of our longest serving Governors.  Her children came to Ashurst Primary School and now her grandchildren come too. 
We also have visits from orchestras, writers, drama teachers and many others to help us enjoy our learning even more.
