There was a special Royal delivery at a school in Yetminster near Sherborne on Tuesday as some of the children at St Andrew’s Primary School received letters from the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge.
The pupils in Ash class at the school in Stonyacres each received a letter from the Royal couple in recognition of the children all writing letters to William and Kate, in which they asked if Prince George could attend their school when he was old enough.
The teachers of Ash class were thrilled when they received a letter from Kensington Palace which said, “Their Royal Highnesses have been overwhelmed by all the incredibly thoughtful messages they have received and were immensely touched that you and the children should take the trouble to write as you did”.
Katrina Halford, one of the teachers of ash class commented, “We were writing persuasive letters and thought it would be a great idea to try to persuade the Royal couple to send their son, Prince George, to our school when he was old enough. Imagine our excitement when the post came to the school with letters for all the children in the class, I am sure the children will treasure the letter from a future King”.
A specialist support teacher at the school, Bella Neate-Clegg also gave her view, “This is a very good example of the power of the pen. Well done one and all. The Royal couple were obviously impressed”.
If the letters from William, Kate and George were not enough for the pupils, they also received a photo of the Royal trio to pin to the class notice board, a sort of reminder for the children for their amazing feat.
Their will be celebrations aplenty in just under two weeks as Prince George turns one on July 22nd, one can assume that the pupils of ash class will be celebrating in their own unique way.
