Open the Book – Annual Report 2014/2015

Open the Book – Annual Report 2014/2015

The first thing is a huge thank you to Anne Kilvington who initiated our Open the Book team to first visiting Ashland’s School in 2008 and who has now stepped down as our co-ordinator. Also to John Sunderland who has taken a sabbatical, we thank him for his commitment to those early Monday mornings travelling from Silsden to be in school so early.

Over the past six months our team has grown and we welcome four new members -

Fr. Chris, Philipa Higgins, Catherine Gibson and Tina Warnes who have joined Helen Stefanutti, Janet Kish and I. Thanks also go to Fr. Godfrey who is ever willing to step in when needed.

We continue to visit school approximately every two weeks for KS1 Assembly and we appreciate the welcome we receive from both staff and the pupils. This academic year we have been telling stories of the early Christians and of Jesus the teacher and the healer. It is indeed a privilege to be involved with this collaborative work between Church and School and we learn much from the enthusiasm of the children and appreciate the support we have from Anne Cayton and the Team at Otley Christian Resources Hub.
