Royal Wedding Delight for Mr de Souza

We were all thrilled to learn that our 2017 Cheshire Schools Inspirational Teacher of the Year, Mr de Souza, had been invited to attend the wedding of HRH Prince Harry and Megham Markle at Windsor Castle on 19th May 2018.

Mr de Souza was invited to the event on behalf of the Royal Couple by the Lord Lieutenant of Cheshire, David Briggs, as a result of his success in the Cheshire Schools Awards when he was named Inspirational Teacher if the Year. Mr de Souza is a popular teacher with all of the students, many of whom met him whilst in primary school during one of the many sports competitions he runs with younger children.

Mr de Souza told the Congleton Chronicle:
"I was not expecting it at all. It is quite overwhelming and I feel really lucky and proud to be able to represent Cheshire."

He will attend the event along with his wife and has promised to take lots of photographs of the day to share with everyone back at CHS. He has also been asked to take part in a BBC social media initiative on the day and will post videos and photographs to a special BBC Royal Wedding app during the event.

Everyone at Congleton High wishes Mr and Mrs de Souza a wonderful day and hope they enjoy every minute of this exciting and once-in-a-lifetime opportunity.
