Tod-speed' to Whitleigh from the L.E.A,

AT Whitleigh, on the new and extensive housing estate north of Plymouth, Bishop Restieaux on Sunday laid the foundation stone for St. Peter's £40,000 primary school for 280 children.

The hall will serve as a parish hall for St. Peter's. and will have an altar behind a sliding partition for Mass on Sundays and Holidays.

Four Canons and 19 other priests from surrounding parishes attended the ceremony as well as Alderman Perry. chairman of the Plymouth Education Committee, and Dr. Scotland, Director of Education, and many other lay people.

The Bishop thanked the City officials for their attendance and said that the Catholic community deeply appreciated the Local Education Authority's courteous aid, and their intelligent understanding of Catholic educational ideals.

Alderman perry assured Bishop Restieaux that the L.E.A. would co-operatc as far as possible with the Catholics in education; the authority had provided the site, and he wished God-speed to the Whitleigh project.
