Lucky TKAT pupils enjoy royal visit!

Posted on 9th May 2019

Children from Drapers Mills Primary Academy couldn't beleive their luck this week, when they were invited by Place2Be to represent them at the launch of The King’s Cup, a major new sailing event hosted by The Duke and Duchess of Cambridge in support of their charitable causes.

The children (and Mr Wilson) met the Royal VIPs at the Cutty Sark, in Greenwich.and spoke to Princess Kate about their experience working with Place2Be. The lucky chldren then joined both her and Prince William in the sailing simulator. One said;

“ It was so weird sitting in the boat having a chat with the Prince William; it’s not every day you have a sailing race with the Duke & Duchess of Cambridge!"

A great day was had by all - and no doubt the pupils and staff at Draper Mills will have plenty of fond memories to share with their family and friends.
