Head of Junior School at Sutton High School Miss Anne Musgrove, wrote the following account of the school's royal themed Charity Week celebrations.
Last weekend, as we all watched the Queen’s 90th birthday celebrations, we were reminded of the fact that our Queen is patron of over 600 charities in the United Kingdom.
This inspired our girls, who launched their first Junior School Charity Week. The week involved our Year 6 leaders designing and making games, which the younger girls then played at break and lunchtimes.
The girls also participated in Sutton’s Got Talent, under the guidance of our judges, the Year 6 music leaders, who were worthy of a television performance themselves!
The finale of the fundraising week was a ‘Royal Garden Party’ with our very own Queen and Prince Philip. The girls sang the national anthem, learnt other traditional British songs and watched a live tea party at Windsor Castle.
Our girls are inspired by our sovereign and her devotion to charities. In one week, they raised over £1,200 for their nominated charities, Rainbow Trust and Cancer Research UK. Congratulations girls and thank you parents and friends for all your support.
