Celebrating the King’s coronation at Gorse Hall School
Posted by : Transform Our World

Students at Gorse Hall School in Tameside have recently celebrated the coronation of HRH King Charles with a day of themed activities focussed on raising awareness about climate change and global warming.

Designed to reflect the King’s personal interest in promoting environmental issues, students took part in activities including eco hero t-shirt designing and making coronation wreathes.

Each class was given an eco-theme, including water, waste, littering, energy, biodiversity, the school grounds, healthy living, marine, global citizenship and transport. Students will be showcasing their final designs in a fashion show later this term.

As part of the day, the schools Africa Committee designed a recipe based on celebrating HRH's heritage and culture too, including callaloo and feta cheese edible crowns. The students and staff said they tasted delicious!

In the school’s Coronation Kitchen Garden, students planted out themed vegetables such as King Edward Potatoes, Scarlet Emperor Runner Beans and Red Baron Onions. They also planted flower tubs with red, white, and blue pansies.
