Pupils from a primary school in Wembley have left with a token of their time there in print for evermore.
Year 6 pupils from Chalkhill Primary School in Barnhill Road, were delighted to see the letters they sent to Times news editor Lorraine King, make it into the paper.
The 13 pupils wrote about their fears and excitement at the prospect of leaving their primary school, with some sorry to see their friends go elsewhere but all with happy memories.
Buzzing with excitement as they prepared for their leaver’s prom, the children were struck to see their work in print.
Stacey said: “I am happy to know that people will hear my opinions about what I thought about the school.”

Bethan Mentore, literacy co-ordinator at the school, believed writing an agony aunt letter would enable them to express their feelings about leaving primary school.
She said: “It’s nice to have a platform for children to see how writing is purposeful and it doesn’t just stay in exercise books. They did so well in their SATs and I wish them the best in secondary school. Now we’re looking forward to our prom!”
