Event - A Royal Visit

13 September 2012

On the 13th of September the Princess Royal, Princess Anne, came to officially open the RNIB Pears School next door to Wheelwright Lane Primary. We (six children from Year 6, and six from Year 5 and Mrs Essex) were very excited to be invited to help with their welcome and celebrations.

As lots of flags were still in school from our jubilee party, we took them and waved them as the princess arrived and departed in her chauffeur driven car.

During her visit Princess Anne had a tour of the RNIB site. She saw us making music in the boomwhackers workshop and, I think you’ll agree she looked very impressed!

We all had a really memorable afternoon
