Willow Brook School’s Grand Opening!

Willow Brook's Celebratory Cake

Regular visitors to this website will remember that back in June I posted a story about ‘Church Mead’ school being relaunched as ‘Willow Brook’ school (click here to reread that story).

Ever since I posted that story, pupils old and new have been posting their comments about their experiences of Church Mead and their hopes for Willow Brook.

It’s been this website’s most popular story so far!!!

On Friday, local MP Harry Cohen and I attended the official launch of Willow Brook school, which was absolutely lovely.

Below, are some pics of the event.

Enjoy! 🙂

After a warm welcome from Theresa Busby, Willow Brook’s Head Teacher, guests were treated to a splendid fashion show of the school’s Spring, Summer and Winter Wear. These kids have it far too good these days. It was all puff ball skirts and leg warmers in my day 🙂

Thanks again to everyone at Willow Brook for inviting me along to share your special day.

Leyton residents can be proud that we have such a fantastic and improving school based in our ward.
