Visit of Revd David Cowie to St Peter’s Primary School, Wymondham
The recently appointed Priest-in-Charge, Revd David Cowie visited the Class 3 pupils at Wymondham St Peter’s CE Primary School to answer questions about Christianity. The children had previously thought of questions they would like to ask him, including why he wanted to become a vicar and what inspired him to be a Christian. They also asked questions about the bible and the Christian church. Grace in Year 5 commented, “It was very educational because we learnt about God and it was very interesting because Revd David was happy to share everything he knew about God.”
On Thursday 28th September, the school held its annual Harvest Festival at St Peter’s Church, Wymondham, and generously donated both fresh and dried produce. This was the first service for the children that Revd David Cowie officiated at and he commented how much it had cheered him to see so many children in the church.
In school, the pupils at Wymondham St Peter’s learn about different religions in their RE lessons. Assistant head teacher, Mrs Alyson Chambers, is a Leading RE teacher and supports other schools across the county.
