The Countess of Wessex to visit Wokingham Hawkedon Primary School


Her Royal Highness The Countess of Wessex will be visiting Hawkedon Primary School on Wednesday, February 8 to officially open the new family and foundation centres.

Christine Weston, deputy lieutenant for the Royal County of Berkshire, will receive Her Royal Highness before she tours the school accompanied by headteacher Alan Youd and chair of governors Dave Williams.

The school has recently opened its new family centre as well as the EarleyBird and Hawkedon Foundation Centre. Earleybird is a voluntary pre-school which has been working with Hawkedon on establishing a purpose built unit since 2006 when the borough council invited the school to undertake a project to create a foundation partnership. The family centre provides a base for the breakfast and afterschool club, self-help parent groups and community meetings. The school also organises its own courses for parents.

On arriving at Hawkedon Primary School, Her Royal Highness will be greeted by local dignitaries before embarking on a tour of the school.
