Herne CE Infant School were thrilled to be invited to support the opening of the new Herne Bay Sainsbury's store on Wednesday. We took some of our Year 2 children to represent our school community. While they waited for the event to begin, children delighted staff and employees by singing Christmas songs they had been learning at school. The children met the Lord Mayor of Canterbury and were able to watch him cut the ribbon with a pair of gigantic scissors. After the opening ceremony the children went shopping for items such as ribbon, raisons and sweets from their Christingle shopping list before returning to school. The children thoroughly enjoyed being a part of this celebration in our local community.
