Coronation Celebrations

On Friday 5th May, Mayfield celebrated the coronation of His Majesty King Charles III. There was bunting, music, crowns and everyone was wearing red, white and blue to represent the colours of the Union Flag. The courtyard was a party atmosphere with rows of tables and chairs for everyone to celebrate with a traditional street party. Pupils and staff ate sandwiches and cake whilst listening to a coronation playlist of hits, which led to an outbreak of spontaneous dancing, with the culmination being pupils singing Our Coronation Song, led by Mrs Gerighty and finally the national anthem. Pupils have being taking part in a variety of activities all week to celebrate the coronation. Pre-Nursery and Nursery, Kindergarten, Transition and Form I made crowns and then paraded them in front of the rest of the school in Friday’s award assembly. Mrs Hatton judged the winning crowns and the winners received a coronation story book each. Upper School have entered the design a stamp competition and these were displayed in the hall for all to see (winning results are to follow). Thank you to Mrs Guest, Humanities lead, for organising the day and to all of the staff, parents and pupils for making this historical moment one to remember.
