Congratulations to our worthy winners of the Coronation Virtual Balloon race. After a very slow start the wind pushed the children's balloons to the finishing line. We hope parents and children were able to follow the race online, at the height of Mrs Moreland's race her balloon was placed 52nd but finished in 209th place. Well done to all the entrants.
Well done and thank you to the wonderful members of the school choir who were able to avail of the opportunity to sing alongside other Richmond Catholic School's performing Vivaldi's Gloria. The children had to attend many rehearsals and were accompanied by professional musicians who were simply stunning. The concert was held at St Mary the Virgin Church in Twickenham. Mr J and Mrs Moreland were in attendance and were blown away by their performance – well done.
On Friday 5th May all the pupils and staff at St Edmund's celebrated the coronation in style. Throughout the week leading up to the momentous occasion, the children learnt all about our new King, and created their own crowns for the school ceremony. At 2pm prompt our very own Charles and Camilla arrived for the coronation ceremony held on the school field to be officially crowned by Father Nigel. Everyone shared this special moment, and then joined in singing the National Anthem 'God Save King', followed by music and a picnic on the field, we were very lucky to have sunshine for this auspicious occasion in readiness for the coronation of His Majesty King Charles III at Westminster Abbey on Saturday 6th May. To commemorate this moment, we would like to thank the PA for gifting every child in the school with a Coronation bookmark.
