Chorleywood Primary School, which has recently achieved ‘Outstanding’ status from Ofsted, has embarked on a programme called Dream Big.
The purpose of the programme is to encourage Key Stage Two pupils to start thinking about future careers, and community engagement.
Councillor Martin Trevett, who has been a governor of the school for a staggering 44 years, was asked by the board to try and set up a series of presentations from local community-based organisations.
Martin arranged presentations, broadly on the theme of a “day in the life of” from the police, the fire brigade.
On February 10, the school were honoured to receive a visit from the Lord Lieutenant of Hertfordshire Mr Robert Voss CBE and one of his Deputy Lieutenants and local resident David Cansdale.
Mr Voss represents Her Majesty the Queen in Hertfordshire and arrived in full uniform including his ceremonial sword which caused much interest from the children.
He then gave a short presentation on the role of the Lord Lieutenant an institution, which dates to the days of King Henry VIII.
Cllr Trevett said: “The school is delighted that the Lord Lieutenant accepted our invitation to meet our children, and we are greatly honoured to have received him at our school.”
