Back to school for bishop

BISHOP HUGH Lindsay, former Bishop of Hexham and Newcastle, and Old Boy of St Charles School, was on hand last week to open the revamped school in its new site.

The new St Charles RC Primary School, based near Gosforth in Newcastle upon Tyne, was designed for 210 schoolchildren and staff and is less than a half mile away from the original site. Bishop Ambrose Griffiths, present Bishop of Hexham and Newcastle, joined his predecessor at the opening ceremony and laid and blessed the school's foundation stone.

Current headmaster, Michael White, welcomed Bishop Lindsay's presence, saying "it was so appropriate that Bishop Lindsay should perform the opening ceremony and bless our new building since he had been a pupil at the old St Charles School."

"Clearly he must see significant differences in the new school today. I hope that today's ceremony will bring back many happy memories of his own schooldays?'

"Today marks a new era in the parish and indeed for Catholic education in Gosforth," said parish priest Fr Kevin Bolger.
