As part of the big celebration plans to mark the King's Coronation, Newham Council ran a competition for both primary and secondary schools.he winners will receive a £50 personal gift voucher and their school will receive a £100 gift voucher amongst other prizes provided by our partners.
First and second prize winners of the King’s Coronation Schools Competition, and their respective schools, will be awarded their prizes by Deputy Lieutenant Kim Bromley- Derry Esq CBE DL during the Big Help Out Festival on 8 May.
Primary school students had been asked to design a crown for the King that reflects Newham's diverse communities and culture.

Free teaching resources launched for Coronation
This year, millions of people will come together to share friendship, food and fun in their communities for the Coronation Big Lunch , 6 to 8 May. We’re pleased to be working with Eden Project Communities, the people behind the annual Big Lunch initiative, to bring the celebrations to Newham.
Eden Project Communities has launched a special set of teaching resources to help get children ready to mark this historic occasion. The lesson plans, which cover a range of subjects and are for all Key Stages, include a ‘Wild Crown’ making class, linking to The King and Queen Consort’s concern for the environment.
