We had a visit today from the
High Sheriff.

Each local authority has a High Sheriff who is appointed by the queen. His job is to accompany any royal visits and assist judges, the police and voluntary groups.

He is appointed for one year and hasn't visited any school in Tyne and Wear so we are very lucky.

Photographers from the local papers came as well so we might have our photo in the Chronicle.

The High Sheriff, Mr George Scott told all the children about his job and his special outfit. Sheriffs used to collect taxes from people a long time ago.
