Former student pays flying visit

At St Margaret’s Church of England Academy, old boys often drop back in for a visit.

Recently, old boy Edward Janion, who left St Margaret’s in 2002, literally dropped in controlling a Navy Black Cat helicopter.

Edward, who works as a naval engineering technician, contacted the school earlier in the year wanting to replicate another helicopter visit by another old boy back in 1996, when Edward was in Year 7.

He landed safely on the school field at lunchtime and stayed for an hour giving the boys an opportunity to explore the helicopter and talk to the pilots.
