CHILDREN at Polegate Primary School were excited to receive a Queen’s Diamond Jubilee medallion last Wednesday.

Mrs Marion Shepherd, Deputy Lieutenant of East Sussex, presented the first medallion, inscribed ‘Polegate 2012’ to Max, a reception class boy, one of the youngest pupils at the school. 

Max said “I was very happy to be given a medal.”

As there is no official keepsake to mark this once in a lifetime event, the Diamond Jubilee Committee, made up of residents and local organisations, decided to do so. 

Headteacher Claire Martin-O’Donaghue said: “The school is thrilled to be included in the community celebrations and, to have been given this beautiful keepsake, something that is unique and I am sure will be treasured throughout their lives.”
