King’s School Rochester mark the Jubilee

27 May was a day of celebration at King’s School Rochester as they marked the Queen's Platinum Jubilee with activities across the School.

The day began with a Whole School Service under the outstanding Gaia exhibit in Rochester Cathedral. The Dean of Rochester led the school in prayer and we took a moment to reflect on everything that has happened since Queen Elizabeth ascended the throne in 1953. At lunchtime, a small audience gathered once again under the Gaia Exhibit to enjoy our Under The Earth concert. There were beautiful performances of music by our Scholars, inspired by the planet we call our home.

The main event was a Whole School Jubilee Celebration on The Paddock which brought everyone together once again to share in prayer, witness the raising of the flag and enjoy some tea and cakes in the sunshine. Cadets from the Combined Cadet Force then performed a spectacular display where they formed a large 70 across the playing field.

We were lucky enough to have a local drone photographer – Aerial Imaging South East – capture this once in a lifetime moment.
