AN OWL flying display was one of the entertainments that marked the opening of two new facilities at Stebbing Primary School, on Friday
The opening of the Maynard Montessori Nursery and a new all-weather play surface started with a blessing from Reverends Tim and Ruth Goodbody, the new vicars at St Mary's Church.
This was followed by a ribbon cutting that was performed by pupils Toby Hills, 11, and Henrietta White, two, who were chosen because Toby is the oldest pupil in the school and Henrietta is the youngest nursery school pupil.
After the formal ceremonies had taken place, pupils took part in a flying themed fun day.
