LANGLEE Primary School hosted one of the biggest tea parties in the Borders to celebrate the Queen's Diamond Jubilee last week.

More than 200 children, from nursery age to primary seven, took part in the fun day on Tuesday, June 5. And each one received a special medal to mark the occasion.

Within their classies, the pupils made their own crowns and cake for the event and took party in party games with a Royal theme. And, afterwards, the whole school joined together on the primary's playing field for a sing along of the national anthem.

Depute head-teacher Amanda Findlay said: "It's been a day worth celebrating.

"I think because they've made such a big deal of it, some of the classes this morning in assembly were reminding us that it's a unique day in history and that most of us will never ever see it again in our lifetime."
