Military organisation and precision was needed to bring together 1,100 students aged 5-16 (carrying their chairs), and 125 staff out onto the school yard to await the arrival of Bishop John (Hallam) and Bishop Stephen (Wakefield) and guests from both diocese and parishes for Holy Trinity’s Opening Liturgy. Worries about the weather were becalmed as the sun shone but, the inevitable happened. It was not long before the wind blew and the rain fell. Were the students dismayed? Never! Stoically, the students remained seated and focussed throughout, happily seeing the funny side of the situation!
