THE new Bishop of Dover was happy to un­dergo a grilling from pupils of the Lady Joanna Thorn­hill Pri­mary School in Wye when he paid a visit there last week. The Rt Rev Trevor Wil­mott spent part of the day an­swer­ing ques­tions pre­pared by Year 5 pupils and cre­ated a pod­cast with Year 3 pupils which will be sent to all the clergy and vol­un­teers in the Dio­cese of Can­ter­bury. The bishop an­swered some tricky ques­tions that the chil­dren had pre­pared as part of their re­li­gious ed­u­ca­tion, and re­ceived a tour of the school from head teacher Kevin Grout. Mr Grout said: “It was a very in­ter­est­ing day. “Bishop Trevor spent time with each class and spoke to them at an adult level, leav­ing the chil­dren with a deep un­der­stand­ing of his faith. The chil­dren re­ally en­joyed talk­ing to him and meet­ing him.”
