St Mary’s Church of England Primary School held a garden party in honour of the Queen’s Jubilee.
Children, with the help of Cllr Scott Carlton, also planted a silver birch tree in the school grounds in recognition of the Queen’s 70 years’ service.
Head Teacher Maria Parkin said, “This tree will be nurtured and cared for and will be here for many more generations of children to enjoy. Reminding all of us of this special occasion.”
The tree was donated by Edwinstowe Parish Council and Cllr. Scott Carlton addressed children and parents at the event. He said, “I was delighted to accept the invitation to join children at St Mary’s for their Jubilee celebration event. We hope that the tree will act as a reminder of today and the Queen’s long service to the country. It’s fantastic to see so many people marking the event with their children and I look forward to enjoying the cream tea with pupils and their families.”
Teaching Assistant, Mrs Dawn Coleman said, “We would like to thank Linda Broom and Edwinstowe Parish Council for donating the birch tree and to ATTFE College for the children’s scones. We would like to thank them for their support and to our own Cook and Kitchen staff for helping to make this a very special day for our children and their families.”
Head Teacher Maria Parkin said, “Our Jubilee celebrations were made so special by attendance of our families and also Cllr Scott Carlton. Our children understand the significance of the celebrations, and the Queen’s amazing 70 years’ service. We sang the national anthem, enjoyed scones and a great time was had by all. Thank you to everyone who attended and played a role in making this special event possible.”
