Proud Year 6 pupils from Wellfield Junior School joined 16 new UK citizens from around the world, at a welcome ceremony at Sale Town Hall on the 11th September, led by The Mayor of Trafford, Councillor Tom Ross, and attended by the Deputy Lord-Lieutenant of Greater Manchester, Susan Craig JP.

In the splendour of the Town Hall, they played their part, reciting a poem by Benjamin Zephaniah called, “The British (serves 60 million)” and joining with the National Anthem. They presented bookmarks they had made and shared what they felt was special about belonging to our country. A proud moment for everyone involved!
