Pupils’ part in Royal visit

The Peterborough Evening Telegraph - - UK & World Update -

ABOUT 200 chil­dren from eight schools will be in touch with Roy­alty when the Count­ess of Wes­sex of­fi­cially opens Peter­bor­ough Gar­den Park.

The pupils, aged be­tween four and 13, will play a key part in the cel­e­bra­tions.

Each child will have their hand on the rib­bon as the royal vis­i­tor helps cut the rib­bon out­side the door­way of each re­tail unit on July 8. Mary Fore­man, head­teacher at Dogsthorpe Ju­nior School, said: “On be­half of both Dogshorpe In­fant and Ju­nior schools, it is a fan­tas­tic op­por­tu­nity for our chil­dren to have own­er­ship of some­thing tak­ing place on their doorstep. For my school, it’s go- ing to be part of our as­pi­ra­tions day, think­ing about the roles of peo­ple in­volved in royal vis­its. Many of our chil­dren are dis­ad­van­taged and we want them to have great as­pi­ra­tions.”

Events are open to the pub­lic, start­ing at 11am. The Count­ess will un­veil the Chil­dren’s Tile Project art­work.
