Hundreds flock to Queen’s Park school’s Royal Jubilee Fair
First ever public event by ARK Atwoon which opened last September
Hundreds of people basked in the sun and enjoyed a right royal rave-up at a school first ever public event on Saturday.
ARK Atwood in Third Avenue, Queen’s Park, hosted a Royal Jubilee Fair which included a play by reception pupils about the coronation of the Queen.
All 60 pupils of the school, which opened last September, had a part – from the Queen, Prince Philip and Arch Bishop of Canterbury.
The youngsters also played the parts of kings, presidents and ambassadors from countries from Scotland to Djbouti and even more local areas such as Queens Park and Kilburn.
