On a day when education could celebrate the King’s Coronation, most were asking the question, inside or outside? Bredon School opted for a bit of both. Pull Court looked resplendent decked out in bunting, our very own throne, a feast fit for a king, a stall selling produce from the pupils Field to Fork project, and a CCF parade. Thankfully the weather held off and we could celebrate the nation’s first coronation for a few generations.
To mark the Coronation of King Charles III, our Union Jack flag was hoisted up the pole and our Community engaged in a range of exciting themed activities across the school.
In Junior School, the pupils and staff donned red, white and blue clothing. They held a special Early Years’ Assembly, where the pupils learnt all about the coronation and what it means. The day was then spent enjoying different activities. Our younger pupils got creative making royal crafts, bunting and their very own crowns! They all had a marvellous time pretending they were royals. The whole school was treated to brunch fit for a king. Mr Chance began the afternoon celebrations with a whole school assembly educating the pupils on King Charles III and what actually happens in a coronation.
Following the assembly, pupils had the opportunity to celebrate the Coronation with family. We were delighted to welcome around 400 guests, including pupils, relatives and parents, to the school to enjoy a great celebration lunch.
The Dining Hall looked splendid with red, white and blue flags and décor. The Catering team served a classic British mix of finger food and cakes, with a highlight being the wonderfully decorated Coronation cake. It was a wonderful day that has not only left the pupils but also the staff feeling very patriotic.
To finish off the day the CCF saluted His Majesty the King with a parade and by singing the national anthem.
God save the King!
