Pupils at Saint Paul’s Catholic High School in Wythenshawe took part in a day of activities to celebrate The Queen’s historic 2012 Diamond Jubilee.
The whole school, apart from the Year 11s who are on study leave, was involved with the celebrations marking sixty years of The Queen’s reign. The activities varied from a fun sports day involving a variety of events including an egg and spoon race, a sack race and a three-legged race, a street party style lunch and a collection of items for a time capsule which was then buried within the school grounds. Pupils also got creative as they decorated cakes with a royal theme, designed T-shirts for the royal teddy bear and produced a podcast.
“This was a fantastic day which involved all of our pupils having fun around the royal theme; there was something for everyone,” explained Mrs Kathleen O’Kelly, Deputy Head at Saint Paul’s.
“The Queen is only the second monarch in British history to celebrate 60 years on the throne, it was important for us to mark this occasion which I am sure our pupils will remember for many years to come,” commented Mr Wiktor Daron, Head Teacher at Saint Paul’s.
