Royal Wedding Picnic

CHSG Celebrates the Royal Wedding!

CHSG Celebrates the Royal Wedding!
 
To honour one of our British Institutions students from CHSG took part in a range of pre-wedding activities.  Throughout the week students made bunting and decorated the Union Jack flag to wave and decorate their surroundings when watching the wedding of Prince Harry to Meghan Markle.  Students earned themselves House Achievement Points and prizes by entering a number of competitions such as designing a wedding dress for Meghan with the closest design winning; we had some wonderful entries with the prize going to Caitlin Paul from 8NW.  Students could design a wedding plate, write a poem for the married couple or bake a cake for the ‘Royal Wedding Cake Bake-Off’, where we had an array of delicious and beautifully presented cakes.  Year 7 and Year 8 bakers excelled themselves with some amazing cakes and created tough competition for all but the first place winner was Gabriella from 7MG.  Well done to all CHSG bakers!
 

Harry and Meghan used their wedding to promote various charities and asked wedding guests to make charitable donations instead of giving a wedding gift.  With this theme in mind CHSG Citizenship students could take part in a competition where they would write a speech to the happy couple persuading them to add their chosen charity to the royal list.  It was wonderful to read what our impassioned and persuasive students came up with. Finally the students were invited to picnic with their friends and we saw many students bring in blankets and sit in groups sharing out picnic food surrounded by bunting and Harry and Meghan masks.  There was a joyful and celebratory atmosphere amongst all!

Thank you to everyone who got involved and helped out with these events.
