On behalf of County Councillor Mrs. Everall, the headmaster, Mr. Frank Hye, the chairman of the governors, the parents, staff and local residents, may I present this most beautifully prepared petition on behalf of Bourne Valley school, Hemel Hempstead.Whereas Bourne Valley school is liable to closure and the matter is coming before the Secretary of State for Education, your petitioners pray
and by reason of the fact that it is a good school your petitioners prayThat the Bourne Valley School is needed by the parents of the school; its closure will destroy the balance of schools in Hemel Hempstead and will have a damaging effect on a thriving neighbourhood
that your honourable House do require the Secretary of State to reject the proposal of the Hertfordshire County Council to close Bourne Valley School.
And your Petitoners, as in duty bound, will ever pray.
To lie upon the Table
