Visit from Bishop Oliver, Retired Bishop from Madagascar

This month, we welcomed Bishop Oliver to Deal Parochial for the morning. Bishop Oliver served out in Madagascar for 3 years. During assembly, he and Father Roger were impressed by our Year 6’s thought provoking dramatisation of “The Good Samaritan”. Afterwards, Bishop Oliver enthralled the pupils by talking about life in Madagascar. The children then asked lots of questions about the animals, the crops and how “Madagascar came to be”. Bishop Oliver concluded his inspiring visit with a tour of the classrooms when the children had further opportunity to ask him questions.
