Today the Mayor, Stefan Gawrysiak took the assembly at Rupert House School. The Mayor explained that Henley-on -Thames was a village originally and became a town in 1023. In 1600, Henley town was given a crest. He also told the children that Henley is linked with the town of Bled in Slovenia which is also famous for its rowing and he has visited Henley’s twin!
One of the questions in the long question and answer session was “What does a Mayor do?” and he answered “I promote the town”.
Year 3 children are looking forward to visiting the Mayor’s Chambers soon.
