Pupils and staff at Woolenwick Infant and Nursery School celebrated the Platinum Jubilee as a part of their summer fete last week.

The school celebrated the event with themed games such as ‘Hook the Royal Duck’ and ‘Royal Unicorn Hoopla’, and a Bake Off.

The trophies were presented to the winners by the Mayor of Stevenage, Sandra Barr in three categories: children, parents and staff.

Headteacher Usha Dhorajiwala, said: “It is important to mark this milestone by making the occasion memorable and meaningful for children.”

A cherry tree was also donated to the school by housebuilder Taylor Wimpey North Thames.

The tree is linked to the Queen’s Green Canopy project.
