Iris project, latest

Lorna Robinson sends us this news:

On Friday 8th December, Boris Johnson came to talk on the value of Classics at Cheney School on behalf of the iris project. In front of a large audience of Cheney and other local school students, Boris spoke with characteristic wit and intelligence on why he felt that Classics was a wonderful and highly important discipline. The pupils and staff were delighted and entertained by his talk, and came away saying that they had really had their eyes opened to the Classics by his talk.

BBC news came to film interviews with Boris, Lorna, and the students, and this was aired at 6:30pm and 10:30pm on Friday evening.

Boris Johnson will be visiting Benthal Primary in Hackney in 2007 to continue his support of the project.

The next issue of iris magazine will be out on 17th January, and details of contents will be made available on the website at shortly.
