It was delightful to have a number of Spensley Street Primary School students, parents and teachers at the festival on Aug 12 for the announcement of the winning schools.

To thank Spensley Street Primary School for their efforts, I visited the school on 28th August for an Adobe Day where I worked with all the Year 4, 5 & 6 students introducing them to Adobe Express as a way of being digitally creative
