Springfield welcomed the Mayor of Burnley, Coun. Anne Kelly and her consort Mr John Kelly.

They were special guests in the school’s assembly where the whole school sang for them followed by the choir singing ‘Candle on the Water’.

The Mayor then had the pleasure of presenting Springfield Choir with a certificate from Make-A-Wish UK Charity for their charity hour long sing at Burnley Tesco.

Coun. Kelly said: “As a retired teacher I was thrilled to be invited into your lovely school.”


Following the assembly, the Mayor took a tour of the school and spent time speaking to staff members. She also invited the school’s Year 6 class to Burnley Town Hall to see what happens and to understand some of the history of the town hall.
