St Peter’s School marks historic milestone
9:18am Monday 17th September 2012 in News
The Archbishop of York made a special visit to a school in the city to help mark a special milestone.
Dr John Sentamu was at St Peter’s School, Bootham, for a ceremony celebrating the 150th anniversary of the school chapel.
He led a rededication service in the chapel before lunching with pupils and staff and touring the school campus.
Dr Sentamu also met pupils who have completed the Young Leaders Award, a leadership programme developed by the Archbishop of York Youth Trust.
The service was complemented by a choir formed by pupils from St Peter’s, St Olave’s Prep and Clifton Pre-Prep.
Dr Sentamu said: “St Peter’s School has historic links with York Minster and the city of York. The chapel is the spiritual heart of the school, and I am delighted that with this service of rededication we can celebrate the Christian faith lived out in every aspect of life at St Peter’s.”
