TGS Celebrates the Platinum Jubilee with Founder’s Day

6th June 22

TGS celebrated Queen Elizabeth II’s Platinum Jubilee in spectacular fashion with a Founder’s Day fête.  

The Jubilee celebrations began in the morning of Thursday 26th May with a live musical performance outside of the school gates. Two jazz musicians played lively tunes on the banjo and clarinet as The Gower School primary children arrived dressed in the official colours of the Platinum Jubilee and the Union Jack.  

The children listened, danced and sang to the music before taking part in special lessons themed around the Queen’s upbringing, life, and service to the United Kingdom. The children crafted their own bunting, created collage portraits of the Queen, and designed their own special stamps for the Jubilee. Finally, each child handwrote and posted letters to the Queen containing personal messages of gratitude.  

In honour of Her Majesty’s 70 years of service, TGS children and their families then gathered in Caledonian Park for an afternoon of country fête style fun. Partygoers met a spectacular array of activities including bouncy castles, maypole dancing, face painting, pin the tail on the corgi, arts and crafts, bubble-making, a school-wide Bake-Off competition with a royal theme, and so much more! It was a lively and exciting affair, and children had plenty of fun taking part in all the park activities.  

Miss Gowers was thrilled with the day’s events, saying, ‘It was delightful to welcome all children and parents to mark this momentous occasion in the park. One of my favourite things about our school is its active and close-knit parent community, and I felt such joy having families together on Founder’s Day for one big Platinum Jubilee celebration.’
