RuTC celebrates HRH Queen Elizabeth II Platinum Jubilee

Thursday 9 June 2022

On 8 June, Richmond upon Thames College (RuTC) celebrated the Platinum Jubilee, commemorating the 70th anniversary of Queen Elizabeth II reign of Great Britain.

The College’s Student Services team organised a fantastic event for students and staff which included music and activities, a local ice cream van - Sal’s Ices, and a number of stalls promoting local organisations and charities, including, METRO, Heatham House, Richmond Young Carers, MIND and the Metropolitan Police.

Megan Ball and Kelly Jackson in the Student Services team organised the Jubilee decorations and created a bespoke, Queen Elizabeth photo board and handmade origami royal swans in our national colours – red, white and blue.

James Unwin, RuTC catering teacher, handmade hundreds of Victoria sponge cupcakes and cooked hotdogs for staff and students who also enjoyed the games on offer, which included a spinning wheel with various prizes on offer, glow in the dark badminton and more.

Rachel Scarborough, Director of Student Services was delighted at the turnout saying, “I am so pleased at how well the Jubilee celebration went, from ground to the fourth floor the atmosphere was fantastic, everyone was getting involved, having fun celebrating.

“We are proud to acknowledge and celebrate our amazing Queen’s 70-year reign, she is the longest serving monarch this country has ever seen, and she is an example to everyone of duty, dedication and endurance.”
