Every child at the school has received one of the regal coins to mark the Queen’s 90th birthday which she will officially celebrate on Saturday, June 11th.

A special assembly was held at the school and two representatives from Hapton Parish Council, Mr Tim Birbeck and Mr Henry Kayley, who had organised the coins, went into school to present them to the children.

After the half-term holiday, the school will join other Padiham primary schools to celebrate and will also hold a party in school on Wednesday, June 15th.
