Year 1 welcome special guest for talk

January 16, 2024 03:33pm

Children from our Year 1 classes received a visit from the Lady Mayoress of Portsmouth. 

The Lady Mayoress of Portsmouth delivered a talk to children in Year 1 to talk about what it means for her husband to be the Lord Mayor, with her support as Lady Mayoress.

She answered questions about how they became Lord Mayor and Lady Mayoress, why they wear a chain around their necks, and what clothes they wear for special events.

The children gasped in awe when they learned the Lord Mayor's gown was made from gold thread and dates back to times when Henry VIII was on the throne.
