Cake crowns King’s Park Academy party


14-Jun-Kins-Park-Academy 2Pupils at King’s Park Academy in Bournemouth celebrated the Queen’s 90th birthday with the ‘royal family’, the mayor and a cake fit for the Queen herself.
The academy in Ashley Road, Bournemouth, staged a huge tea party in its playground to mark the monarch’s special birthday.

Pupils enjoyed tea, games, music and a cake so huge that it had taken a week to make.

Associate Principal, Lauren Dean, said: “It has taken a great deal of organisation by everyone here, but the party has been a truly wonderful celebration.

“The children have dressed up, the teachers have thrown their all behind it, the catering staff have excelled themselves and everyone has had a fantastic time.”

The new Mayor of Bournemouth, Councillor Eddie Coope, was guest of honour and enjoyed tea and cakes with some of the pupils and was also joined by the academy’s prince and princess, Alexander Wilson and Rosemary Granger.

He said: “I’m bowled over by this party. It’s amazing. There are flags as far as you can see and the children have been perfect hosts.”

While the school’s chef David Olsen showed off the huge, crown-shaped cake, which had taken him and his catering team a whole week to create.
