- Sixth Form
As Her Majesty, Queen Elizabeth II celebrates an impressive 70 years on the throne of England, Malvern St James Girls' School has joyfully celebrated over the coming weeks.
To mark this historic, momentous occasion, pupils and staff have thrown themselves into a variety of events that have occurred at School, from cake making and celebratory lunch to gatherings in the Quad, it is right to say that everyone has had their fair share of Jubilee fun.
Our wonderful Catering Team here at MSJ put on a delicious lunch for all staff and pupils in preparation for Her Majesty's Jubilee.
Smiles were all around when entering the Alice Dining Room as the area had been wonderfully decorated with balloons of all sorts to mark the special occasion, as well as bunting and party hats laid out accordingly.
Once pupils and staff tucked into their lunch, they were treated to music that played within the dining area as they ate, creating an upbeat, merry atmosphere throughout.
Jubilee Photo in the Quad
Some of the staff and pupils from MSJ gathered together early one morning in the Quad and arranged themselves in the shape of the number 70, in celebration and representation of the Jubilee.
Our amazing Estates Team kindly drew the outline of the number onto the Quad with foam in order to guide everyone and assist in capturing the perfect shape and angle for this once-in-a-lifetime occasion.
Headmistresses Jubilee Drinks
The Headmistresses Drinks kicked off to a wonderful start with a great turn out of pupils, staff, and parents, who gathered together in York Hall in celebration of Her Majesty's Platinum Jubilee.
A range of drinks was on offer, from champagne to orange squash as well as a huge Jubilee cake that was cut by one of our Sixth Form girls, and served to all those in attendance.
An orchestra made up of our talented Senior pupils played at the event went on. They all played beautifully as a slideshow of images featuring the the Queen in her younger years appeared behind them.
Year 9 Scholar Jubilee Cake
The Year 9 Scholars made a delicious and beautifully decorated cake in celebration of HM Queen Elizabeth's II Platinum Jubilee.
The cake was designed by Beth, Year 9, who took several lunchtimes of a team effort to get it all finished and presented. It featured the colours red, white, and blue layers with a blueberry sponge as the base, a vanilla and homemade elderflower cordial middle layer, and the top being red velvet cake.
Two talented pupils, Imogen, Year 9, and Cecile, Year 6, have both each created a wonderful design for postcards that have been addressed to all staff in all departments across MSJ.
The cards thank all staff members for being valued members of the MSJ community in the Platinum Jubilee year of HM Queen Elizabeth II.
Jubilee Platinum Pudding
The Year 9 Food and Nutrition Scholars have been very busy at Malvern St James creating the Platinum Pudding in celebration of the Queens’ Platinum Jubilee.
The girls worked as a team to wonderfully create, from scratch, the lemon curd, swiss roll, St Clement’s jelly, custard, Amaretti biscuits, orange coulis, whipped cream, and mixed peel chocolate bark, to show off their skills with this celebratory pudding. Girls spent lunchtime carefully creating every component of the lemon and orange trifle as per Jemma’s instructions, who was the winner of the Fortnum and Masons Competition.
The pupils involved were Beth, Molly, Elizabeth, Cindy, April-Louise, and Natalie. Head of Food & Nutrition, MrsTurner, said “I’m so proud of the girls as they embraced the challenge of all the different layers and made such a fantastic trifle; every layer was executed to the highest standard. The final presentation was superb, it tasted delicious and was fitting for this historic moment.”
Hot Pots Club
Our Little Potters and Tuesday Hot Pots Clubs have this week created an amazing joint display by rolling and coiling clay with a lot of red, white, and blue glaze used in honor of the Queen's Platinum Jubilee.
The lovely teapot was made by Mr Knibb, who runs the pottery group.
Thank you to all involved in getting these great, memorable celebrations together.
