A party at Scremerston School to mark the Queen's 90th birthday.

Children from the school entertained visitors with playground games such as Oranges and Lemons, singing and a medley of Elvis hits accompanied by the ukulele band, led by Darren Holleywell.

A Royal tea party, organised by Anne Bradley and helpers, was held in the school hall.

Lady Rose Crossman cut the birthday cake, accompanied by a rousing chorus of Happy Birthday Your Majesty.

A birthday card, made by the schoolchildren, was signed by visitors and has been sent to Her Majesty at Buckingham Palace.

Earlier this year, Scremerston First School was praised by Ofsted inspectors for its ‘distinctly welcoming ethos that actively encourages the community to take part in the work of the school’. This event was a prime example of that and is evidence of why inspectors decided the school should retain its ‘good’ status.
