MP attends St James’ CoE Primary Academy dedication


On Thursday 10th January 2012 Mark Reckless MP joined children, parents and guests, including the Mayor of Medway, to attend the academy dedication service for St James’ C of E Primary Academy School on the Isle of Grain.

The St James’ school has been co-sponsored by the Rochester Anglican Diocesan Board of Education and The Williamson Trust.

Following the event Mark Reckless said:


“I was delighted to join both pupils and staff this morning at Grain church to celebrate the conversion of the school to an academy. This is an excellent opportunity for the school to build on the solid progress which has been made recently, giving them the freedom to take a pragmatic and effective approach to the education of children in Grain and the surrounding villages.

I would like to wish head teacher, Mrs Ginny Wilson, and everyone involved with the school the best of luck with their new academy status and I look forward to visiting again in the future.”

  1. Today, I went to the beach front with my
    kids. I found a sea shell and gave it to my 4 year old daughter and said “You can hear the ocean if you put this to your ear.” She put
    the shell to her ear and screamed. There was a hermit crab inside and
    it pinched her ear. She never wants to go back! LoL I know this is entirely off topic but I had to tell someone!
