Schoolchildren crown Coronation celebrations

CHILDREN at a Mossley primary school certainly made the most of King Charles III’s Coronation by having their own day of activities.

Milton St John’s, on Mill Lane, found itself decked out in bunting and UK flags as its pupils marked the occasion.

As well as taking part in traditional sports day races, they showed their dance moves in a mini ball, while also enjoying fairground games.

And like any good party, they had ice cream after the school’s parent teacher association arranged a visit from a van.

Headteacher Lisa Gallaher said: “We had a full day of activities.”

The picture at Milton St John’s was repeated at Carrbrook’s Buckton Vale Primary School, where parents joined their children at a coffee morning to start the day.

And the response to a call for cake donations left headteacher Deborah Brown open mouthed.

She said: “We were overwhelmed at the support we received – there were so many delicious cakes for us to purchase we are planning a resale!

“We had a raffle too! The children from our Kindness Counts team and School Council Representatives were there to offer a helping hand.

“The children took part in many activities throughout the day, and they were all thrilled with their ‘grab bag’ lunch.

“In the afternoon, we invited the children into the hall for a celebration where we announced the winners of the Crown making competition.

“The entries were absolutely brilliant and we were so impressed – it was difficult to choose a winner from each class.”
