Showing their true colours: Warwick Academy pupils marked the Queen’s jubilee yesterday (Photograph supplied)

The grounds of Warwick Academy were a sea of red, white and blue yesterday when the school celebrated the Queen’s Platinum Jubilee.

Primary level students were allowed to swap their regular school uniforms for clothes in the colours of the Union Flag, and many opted to make crowns.

Teachers also got into the spirit of celebration with many donning royal garden party-style hats. The school’s quadrangle was decorated with bunting and images of Great Britain’s longest serving monarch.

The Queen ascended to the throne in February 1952 at the age of 25 following the death of her father, George VI. The 70th anniversary of her reign is being marked in the UK this week with ceremonies, parades and street parties.

Warwick’s primary level assembly discussed the anniversary and classes also watched news reports about the event and videos on the Queen’s long life.

Lauren Shah, a Year 5 teacher said: “We have been learning about Bermuda’s history and the significance that the Queen and England play in our own history.”

The event proved popular with pupils.

Eliana Lewis, a year 6 student, said: “Long live the Queen. We learnt in class how long she has lived and been queen. She has lived through many different eras and our class loved to hear all about it”

Victoria Frisbee, also from Year 6, added: “It is important that we know about this history. We are the young ones and it is important for us to know this history and that this jubilee is happening”

Princess: some pupils wore regal headgear (Photograph supplied)
