Farewell to church pupils

Have your say

A SPECIAL leavers’ service for children leaving Church of England schools in the region this summer will be held at Doncaster Minster next Wednesday afternoon.

The Bishop of Sheffield, Dr Steven Croft, will preach at the service.

A specially produced book containing the stories of 41 Church of England schools will be presented at the Doncaster service before being taken down to Westminster Abbey later in the year.

Doncaster Civic Mayor, Coun Eva Hughes, will be present at the service in Doncaster Minster alongside a representative from the Lord Lieutenant’s office.

Pupils from Years 2, 6, 11, 12 and 13 will be in attendance and the Minster has already been confirmed full, with parents, governors, friends and other invited guests completing the guest list.
