Robinswood Afternoon Tea at the Ritz.
As I walked to Robinswood on Wednesday 25th May I thought it would be a day I would never forget, year 6 were hosting Afternoon Tea at the Ritz. As soon as we arrived at school Mr. Latham informed us the Countess of Wessex would be joining us for Afternoon Tea along with many other important guests. I enjoyed it very much because I had the responsibility of being a waitress at the table the Countess of Wessex was at. On arrival she was escorted to her seat and greeted by Bob Allen (a school governor), Mr. Latham and four year 6 pupils. Having arrived, the table was now full so I was able to serve the guests their Afternoon Tea. Firstly, I asked what they would like to drink and sent the order to the kitchen. I felt nervous and worried in case I did anything wrong bur fortunately I didn’t. Then I served an assortment of sandwiches and cakes and waited for any requests. I really enjoyed the experience even though it was extremely hard work.
At the end of the afternoon the whole school waved goodbye to the Countess as she left by a helicopter, I knew it will be a day I will never forget!
