On Friday 16th September 2022, Meopham Community Academy took time to remember and celebrate the life of Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II.
All year groups visited St John The Baptist Church in Meopham. Here they looked at pictures of The Queen including photos of Her Majesty when she visited Meopham in 1956.
Years 2-6 also walked to Meopham Cricket Ground where they laid flowers, looked at photos of Queen Elizabeth II and saw the book of condolences.
We would like to thank Meopham Parish Council for providing the classes with pages from the book of condolences for the children to add their messages to. These pages will be bound with the rest of the book of condolences following The Queen's funeral. Our thanks also go to St John The Baptist Church and those at the Cricket Pavilion for accommodating our visits.
In the afternoon, we held a remembrance service looking back at The Queen's life, her achievements and service to our country. We finished by singing together a song that we sang for the Platinum Jubilee just a few months ago.
