We were delighted and excited to welcome the multi-award winning journalist and news presenter, Clive Myrie, to Ditcham Park School this week. Clive is well known for his work as a presenter on the BBC News at Ten. He has, however, spent most of his working life as a foreign correspondent and has reported on many of the great world events over the last twenty years.
Clive unveiled a plaque to officially open four new classrooms for Junior pupils in front of an assembled audience of pupils, teachers, parents and Governors. He spent the day at the school with pupils from all year groups, sharing his experiences of international journalism and running workshops for different age groups. Students used their newly gained skills to film and report on Clive’s visit and the official opening of the classrooms.
The new building was completed over the summer holidays and provides a wonderful, light and spacious learning environment for pupils in Year 4 & 5. It represents the start of an exciting School Curriculum and Building Development Plan.
