The Seer Green CE School Choir raise the roof at the annual headteachers’ service.

NEW Church school headteachers were commissioned with special Bibles at Christ Church Cathedral in Oxford.

The commissions took place during the annual Diocese of Oxford Service for Headteachers and Governors on Thursday (October 24th). Representatives of Church schools from Oxfordshire, Berkshire and Buckinghamshire were part of the event. The service began with a welcome from Diocesan Education Director Anne Davey, who invited the choir from Seer Green CE Combined School, who were singing at the event, to look up at the high ceiling of the cathedral. “This is to help us remember how high God’s love is,” said Anne, who later handed out around 15 Bibles to new CofE school headteachers.

The children from the Seer Green choir sang during the Eucharist service and enjoyed the experience of visiting the cathedral. Katie, 10, said: “It was really good because it was really interesting watching the headteachers get their Bibles.” Nikolas, nine, said he was struck by how big the cathedral was when he walked in. He said: “I liked seeing all of the pictures and statues on the walls and ceilings.” Morgan, 10, said: “It was nice to see how all of the headteachers got together.”
