ROYAL Wedding celebrations at King’s Ely Acremont and Nursery have raised £119 for charity.
The money is being donated to Heads Together, a mental health charity launched by the Duke of Cambridge, Duchess of Cambridge and Prince Henry of Wales to tackle stigma around mental health.
One of the charity’s new initiatives is ‘Mentally Healthy Schools’, a free and easy-to-use website for schools, drawing together reliable and practical resources to improve awareness, knowledge and confidence in promoting and supporting pupils’ mental health.
The celebrations on May 18th saw children at King’s Ely Acremont and Nursery dressing up in patriotic colours for the day, and many arrived at school sporting fancy hats and accessories.
Bright sunshine shone over the school garden as the children enjoyed a whole host of Royal-themed games and activities, including ‘Catch the Corgis’, ‘Harry, Harry, Meghan’, and ‘What’s the time Her Majesty?’. There was also a picnic lunch out in the garden, a visit from Ely Cathedral Girls’ Choir, a cake sale and competition, and a parade of hats where prizes were awarded.
At King’s Ely Junior, a Harry and Meghan photo booth proved popular throughout the day, with both students and staff, and there were cake-baking competitions, Royal-themed poetry and a competition to create a commemorative paper plate fit for the occasion.
