Slough MP joins Jubilee party at Arbour Vale School

The MP for Slough, Tan Dhesi and the new Mayor of Slough Councillor Dibagh Parmar both joined pupils at Arbour Vale School as they celebrated the Queen’s Platinum Jubilee. Pupils, staff, parents, carers, governors and supporters joined together for a whole day of activities culminating with music, dancing and a parade of costumes.

Sixth Form Student, Princess, said: “We are celebrating the Queen’s Jubilee because she has been on the throne for 70 years and that is a very long time. I really enjoyed dancing and celebrating with my friends.”

The event which took place on Thursday 26th May, started with a treasure hunt and pupils had the chance to meet some animals that had made the trip over from Tom’s Farm, a therapeutic farm based at Nightingale Community Academy.

The MP and Mayor joined family members and other guests for a party on the school playing field after a picnic lunch were able to join the party on the field after lunch. Pupils performed various musical numbers and dances before the day culminated with a parade of royalty-inspired costumes.

Neil Sykes, Principal of the School, said: “Staff and pupils have pulled out all the stops to celebrate the Queen’s Platinum Jubilee. It is really important for us to come together as a whole community to mark this milestone, particularly after the last two years when we were not able to all gather in this way. We want to create happy memories for our children and families that will last for many years to come.”

As a community of learners, families and colleagues OHC&AT believes that by working collaboratively, with energy and ambition we can always effect positive change. No limit is placed on what is possible and everyone has the ability to be the very best they can be.
