Duchess drops in on primary school

Reporter: Reporter


SARAH, Duchess of York, officially opened Enborne Primary School's new £500,000 extension today (Friday).
The former Royal, who now works for children's charities across the world, visited the village school after an invitation from the chairman of governors John Tyzack.
The new extension has been in use for six months, after seven months of construction. It includes a new hall, infant classroom, office and reception area.
Pupils told the Duchess that it meant they no longer had to move furniture around, and had space for PE lessons, music and dance.
Children from all years at the school danced and sang for their special guest, who praised parents, teachers and governors for their role in school life.
The Duchess, who was previously married to Prince Andrew and is the mother of Princesses Beatrice and Eugenie, told the children: “You've got to believe that anything is possible, you can dare to dream, and it really can happen.
“I hope that you have the most incredible journey that I've had, but if you can all just remember to look up at the sky every morning and say: 'You know what – I wonder what today's going to bring'.
“It could bring your prince, or your princess, or what ever you want.”
She donated some of the children's books that she has written over the last 20 years.
She said: “Some of the grown ups in the room will know that I don't really like grown ups. I like young ones. It's more fun to live in a world of children.”
