Bournemouth Park Junior School Magazine

Marking the Celebration of the Silver Jubilee

Before Bournemouth Park became a primary, the infant and junior school were separate buildings.  Bournemouth Park Junior School produced a magazine celebrating the Queens Silver Jubilee, (25 year reign as Queen of England).

Simon Ridgwell (3rd year) wrote a poem about the Jubilee.  Here is the poem;






The Queen’s twenty- fifth,

And what a gift,

The street parties will sing,

And it will bring

Joy to the Queen,

And she will live

All through the days-

Long live the Queen.



Richard Wood (2nd year) wrote a poem.


I am up in the trees

When a man I see,

He has a letter for me,

What can it be?


I opened and read

Good news and bad,

My father is dead,

I am the Queen, it said.

And I must be brave,

And be strong,

Although I’m sad,

To cry would be wrong.


Other articles included in the magazine were:


A timeline about what’s been happening, by Paul Merry (2nd year).

Sharon Geary (4th year) wrote about the crown jewels.

Keith Britton (4th year) wrote a quiz about Kings and Queen’s.

Tracy Smith (4th year) wrote about Elizabeth the first.

Shane Hiller (3 rd year) wrote about Everest conquered.

Helen Fowle (1st year) wrote about the Queen’s head.
Diane Lawrence (3rd year) wrote about organising the Jubilee.


Paul Bradly (4th year) wrote about the Royal Yacht.

  1. Nice to read about the school. I attended from 1956 and started in the tin hut. I left a glass and foil picture of a Dutch scene I’d made with my Dad’s help. It was in Mr Carter’s room. Love to know if it’s still at the school. Iris Caten.
