Royal Wedding Celebrations
The children of Marham Infant School celebrated in style with their own Royal Wedding Street Party held within the grounds of the school.
The children, dressed in a variety of colourful hats and outfits to mark the occasion, gathered at the flagpole in the playground along with their parents, to have their party officially opened by RAF Marham’s Station Commander, Group Captain Pete Rochelle, ably assisted by Infant School pupil Amber who helped cut the ribbon. Parents and teachers alike were then treated to an enthusiastic rendition of the National Anthem which the children had been practising hard for, ready for the big occasion.
The children had recently learnt all about the Royal Wedding, through studying an introduction to the Royal Family and looking at past Royal Weddings that have taken place. They had also been busy learning a number of songs which they performed to their parents as part of the entertainment for the afternoon and had even made their own souvenirs.
When Harry aged five years old was asked what he had thought of the party he summed it up by saying “It was wonderful!”
Head Teacher, Michaela Webb, added “It’s been a wonderful opportunity for all children, staff and families to come together to celebrate this special occasion.”
RAF Marham families celebrated the Royal Wedding with a picnic in the park. This took place on the Station sports pitch, where people enjoyed a picnic whilst watching a game of cricket. Residents got into the spirit of the day by dressing up in red, white and blue.
At ‘Home Alone’ the organisers extended their normal Friday morning opening hours in order to watch the wedding on the TV.
