Hanford commemorates the late Queen Elizabeth II
Hanford pupils have been celebrating the life of our longest serving monarch, the late Queen Elizabeth II, in a myriad of ways. A special commemorative service was held in Hanford’s Chapel on Saturday, to which all parents were invited and at which the Poet Laureate, Simon Armitage’s poem Floral Tribute was read.
Although Hanford observed the Bank Holiday, we had a number of girls who stayed at school; they watched the late Queen’s funeral together with staff in the library and observed the two minutes silence along with the rest of the nation.
In addition, the school’s brand-new Art Barn became a hub of activity throughout the week as each and every pupil made their own piece of artwork to commemorate the Queen.
This beautiful piece of art was created by Flora, Year 8 (UVI).
