May Queen Crowned

Every year we celebrate the changing of the seasons and crown our May Queen

As a tradition dating back generations, South Kilworth Primary has always celebrated the arrival of Spring with a school fair, May Pole dancing and the crowing of our own May Queen. Presented to the youngest girl in school, the crown and cape (which is over 40 years old) are placed on the girl, with her name added to the school records. 

This year we crown our own May Queen during the school fair, where she was joined by her friends and classmates as they danced around the May Pole, played games and joined in the fun!

"In the British Isles and parts of the Commonwealth, the May Queen or Queen of May is the personification of the May Day holiday, and of springtime and also summer. The May Queen is a girl who rides or walks at the front of the parade for May Day celebrations. She wears a white gown to symbolise purity and usually a tiara or crown of spring flowers." (Wikipedia)
