Pupils re­ceive royal thanks for kind words

Macclesfield Express - - SCHOOLS NEWS -

CHIL­DREN at a pri­mary school were thrilled to get per­son­alised cards from the Duke and Duchess of Cam­bridge.

The chil­dren at Bollinbrook Pri­mary School, on Abbey Road, Mac­cles­field, wrote to Prince Wil­liam and Kate when they an­nounced the birth of Princess Char­lotte.

They sent home­made cards to con­grat­u­late them and have re­ceived a thank you from the royal cou­ple.

Kath Brad­shaw, from the school, said: “They did not ex­pect to hear back, but the chil­dren re­ceived a very ex­cit­ing pack­age from Buck­ing­ham Palace.

“In­side was a let­ter thank­ing the class for their warm wishes, and thank­ing them for their hand­made cards.”

In ad­di­tion to the let­ter, each child in year one re­ceived a post­card from the Duke and Duchess of Cam­bridge thank­ing them for their cards and best wishes, each in a per­son­alised en­ve­lope.

The royal seal of ap­proval is the latest ex­cite­ment for staff at Bollinbrook af­ter the pre-school was named as ‘out­stand­ing’ fol­low­ing an Of­sted in­spec­tion and the com­ple­tion of an out­door class­room in the school woods.

Kath added: “Though the pre-school runs in­de­pen­dently of the pri­mary school links be­tween the two set­tings are very strong, with an ex­cel­lent tran­si­tion ex­pe­ri­ence pro­vided for the chil­dren as they move onto big school.

“The pre-school also has use of all the lovely grounds sur­round­ing the school, in­clud­ing a fan­tas­tic wood­land area and out­door class­room.

“To add to this achieve­ment, the set­ting is also hav­ing a new build­ing in­stalled over the sum­mer hol­i­days which will pro­vide even bet­ter fa­cil­i­ties for the chil­dren and fam­i­lies that use it.”
