We were lucky enough to have a visit from Bonnie and Zebedee , two working guide dogs. They came into school with their owners and Anne from The Guide Dogs for the Blind Association.The children learnt all about the life of a guide dog and heard first hand what's it like to live without your sight.

As the school generated the idea to place a memorial in our village as part of our 'Recognise and Remember' learning, it was lovely to see staff , children and their families at the Dedication of the Lydden Memorial on Sunday 11th November 2018. Children laid a wreath on behalf of the school , which includes a poem of Remembrance written by our Year 5 children. We are grateful that we now have a poignant and permanent way to recognise and remember people from our village.

A Day to Remember

Dover Primary School Swimming Gala - 2018


The children eagerly participated in the Dover School Swimming Gala. The competition was fierce, with many children competing in the gala also representing club swimming teams.

The school were extremely proud of how the children supported each other and performed. Not only did we have great representation in the finals, we also had children winning and coming second in their heats.


Emily – Age 10/11 Girls 25m backstroke – Winner overall (Dover Primary School champion)

Isaac M– Age 10/11 boys 25m backstroke – Winner overall (Dover Primary School champion)

Emily – Age 10/11 Girls 50m Freestyle – Second place in final (Dover Primary School runner up)

Isaac D – Age 8/9 Boys 25m breaststroke – Second place in final (Dover Primary School runner up)


Charlotte – Age 10/11 Girls 25m Breaststroke – Second place in Heats – progressed to final with a 5th placed finish

Billy – Age 8/9 Boys 25m backstroke – second place in heats

Special mention to: Harry, Olivia, Roxy and Thomas who didn’t make the finals in their heats but performed valiantly in the pool. We are all very proud.


It is the school’s best performance at a swimming gala and with such unwavering support for each other all children can hold their heads high. However, we are also told Emily broke the Dover Lifeguard record for her amazing 25m backstroke, which has been held since 1997. From all of us at Lydden –congratulations.

What a morning to remember!
