St Michael's CofE Academy - Queen's Platinum Jubilee

February 9, 2022

The School Council at St Michael’s Church of England Academy were one of a few schools in the borough of West Norfolk that were asked to write an address to congratulate Her Majesty on the occasion of her Platinum Jubilee. Three local schools’ messages were chosen and were amalgamated together to make the address on behalf of the Borough.

On Friday 4th February, the school council children who wrote the message, met the Mayor of King’s Lynn to see the final version of the address before he presented it Her Majesty. The children were excited and proud to be involved in such a special occasion. The Mayor was particularly pleased with the children’s ideas, as he wanted to reflect the thoughts and feelings of the people in the Borough.

To write our address the children thought about the qualities that makes the Queen so special, the work that she has done over her 70 year reign and how they feel proud to be a part of the borough that she visits each year-they told her how much they loved visiting Sandringham and climbing the trees!

The framed address was given to the Queen at Sandringham House of the 5th February.

The Queen thought that the address written by the children was a wonderful idea and enjoyed reading their words of congratulations.
