Pupils at Kingfisher Primary School in Yeovil were delighted to welcome members from Blesma, the charity that supports limbless veterans, to take part in their official school opening on Friday 28th June.
The afternoon got underway with an assembly where children talked about their experiences of building the school, visiting the site during construction and using the state of the art facilities. Members from Blesma, including Andy Barlow who was part of the Invictus GB team, Kirk Hughes, Andy Phillips, Adrian Thornton and Martin Gwillim, gave inspirational speeches about overcoming difficulties and the power of resilience.
Head teacher Lucy Crowe commented, 'Our Kingfisher School motto is 'Being the best we can be' which is reflected in all aspects of our school life. We were utterly delighted to welcome members from Blema, to celebrate the opening of our beautiful building.'
Guests, parents and governors, were invited to join in the celebrations during the afternoon with a festival of sport. Pupils had a wonderful afternoon in the sunshine enjoying a range of sporting activities.
