Cutty Sark Opening
Thirteen year 5 and 6 children braved the rain on Wednesday 25th April 2012 to see HRH Queen Elizabeth and Prince Philip at the opening of the Cutty Sark at Royal Greenwich. The children proudly waved their flags as the royal party drove past.
The Cutty Sark looked magnificent and brave young soldiers spent many hours high up in the riggings awaiting the arrival of the Queen.
The children heard the Greenwich choir sing songs composed especially for the event.
The children were lucky enough to witness the Royal barge sail along the river as the event unfolded.
This was a wonderful experience for the children which they will be able to share with their own children one day.
