On Friday 8th July we were invited by the previous Mayor of Kingston, Suahila Abraham, to be one of eight schools in the borough to be part of a visit from The Earl of Wessex, Prince Edward, to Kingston. The visit was to mark the Queen's Jubilee and was centred around the Coronation Stone. Each school was asked to research one of the Anglo Saxon kings who were thought to be coronated at this spot. We were welcomed by the now Mayor and his wife as well as Lord-Lieutenant and were treated to some of the history of the area via various speeches. Prince Edward then walked around each of the schools talking to them about their king and our children did us proud talking about Ethelred the Unready, the last of the kings.
The Prince then went on to unveil a plaque to commemorate his visit as well as signing a guest book which was then signed by all visitors at the occasion, including our school.
It was so lovely to be invited to be part of such a special occasion and the children represented the school brilliantly.
