Harrow Lodge Primary School

Harrow Lodge Primary School in Hornchurch celebrated the royal wedding in true Great British style as children and staff took part in a prince and princesses party.

All parents were invited to join their children for a fun-filled afternoon that included a picnic on the school field along with traditional British games and events.

A choir of children stood around the old ‘Joanna’ entertaining the guests with songs such as ‘Roll out the Barrel’, ‘It’s a long way to Tipperary’, ‘The White Cliffs of Dover’ and ‘Pack up your troubles’ while games set up on the field included a Tug o’ War, Hoopla and an obstacle race with an ‘army’ flavour to it.

Of course, there were traditional games of football scattered around the field but the main attraction seemed to be the colourful Maypole offering guests the opportunity to take part in a spirited dance hailing from a bygone era.

And it wouldn’t be a great British event without a raffle to end proceedings, as staff from the school made their own beautifully decorated wedding cakes to rival that of Harry and Meghan’s and these proved to be a popular draw for guests.

All proceedings went towards the school’s playground fund which continues to be a focus for the school. However, the schools’ cookery club didn’t want to forget those less fortunate and they decided to make and sell biscuits to raise money for ‘Children in Need’.

Deputy Head Teacher Lynette Searle said: “We couldn’t be more proud of our school, our children and our families. They all came together in a joyful celebration of true Britishness and created a day that will be remembered for many years to come.”
