Celebrating Success | Molly McAlister

While we have organised a range of events in school to celebrate the Queen’s Platinum Jubilee, one of our students, Molly McAlister (Year 11), was invited to attend the Platinum Jubilee Pageant in London as a Young Leader with Tempo Brownies.

“The Queen has a long-standing personal history with Girlguiding first joining as a Guide in 1937, at 11 years old alongside her 7-year-old sister, Princess Margaret as a Brownie. As a member of the 1st Buckingham Palace Guides, she took part in camping trips and earned badges in swimming, first aid, dancing, cooking, interpreting and horse riding. In 1952, the same year she succeeded to the throne, HM The Queen became Joint Patron for Girlguiding with Queen Elizabeth (The Queen Mother).”

Molly thoroughly enjoyed the pageant, saying “It was so exciting to watch the pageant, there was so much to see and the atmosphere was amazing. My favourite parts were the heliosphere, seeing the Gold State Coach and Ed Sheeran!”

It’s lovely to think that a member of our school community was at the heart of the action during this memorable event. We are looking forward to our own celebrations at the end of this week!
