As the cavalry polish their buckles ahead of the Trooping of the Colour at Horse Guards Parade, and St Paul's Cathedral prepares a national service of thanksgiving, staff and pupils throughout Cheltenham Prep have been celebrating the Queen's historic 90th birthday.
From hats, wigs, flags and scarves, boys and girls in Years 3 to 8 donned accessories of red, white and blue. The Kingfishers enjoyed ‘street’ parties in the school grounds, waving flags they had made themselves, and eating food they had prepared throughout the morning. There were some fantastic union flag skirts and t-shirts to be seen, as well as many excellent red, white and blue hats and ribbons. What a lovely way to celebrate, outside on a sunny June day!
