A GOLDTHORPE school’s own royalty were in attendance at a special event to celebrate the Queen’s Jubilee last week.

The sun beamed down as pupils Oliver Noble (aptly named for the occasion) and Teegan Woolley, both aged seven, were the king and queen who cut the ribbon to allow festivities to begin at the Sacred Heart RC Primary School.

Wearing hand-crafted crowns, the couple were flanked by attendants Tallulah Walker, four, and Lewis Fawcett, five, in stunning headgear and cloaks, and pupils throughout the school took part in a parade to show off their carefully crafted designer hats and crowns.

Parents joined staff and pupils in the celebrations, and sampled cakes and refreshments from a cafe-style stall set up in the school grounds.

Youngsters and adults enjoyed a variety of garden-party games. Jewellery that had been hand-made by pupils was sold alongside flags and other celebratory items.

A staff spokeswoman said: “We wanted to do something special for the Queen’s Jubilee and everyone enjoyed preparing for the event, along with the day itself.”
