A BISHOP was the guest of honour at the opening ceremony of a new sixth form building in St Albans.

The Right Reverend George Stack, who was ordained an Auxiliary Bishop for the Diocese of Westminster in 2001, cut the ribbon at Nicholas Breakspear School earlier this month.

The sixth form block, which has been named the John Paul II Sixth Form centre, has been fitted with brand new furniture and also boasts state of the art computer technology and study rooms.

Head Girl Laura Graccefa was on hand to greet all the guests on the day and said that she was very impressed with the new centre: "The range of facilities and the huge amount of space is fantastic. We feel a lot more independent."

Head teacher Phil Jakszta, who had been at the school for five years, said that he too was pleased with the sixth form building: "We are delighted to have such a fantastic facility for our sixth formers who thoroughly deserve it. We are also honoured that the bishop was able to open and bless the centre for us - he has become a great friend of our school.
