Princess Anne drops in on Catterick Garrison school

Princess Anne meets Risedale's head boy and girl David Bulmer and Binita Gurung and principal Colin Scott.

The head boy and head girl at Risedale Sports and Community College greeted Princess Anne as she visited Catterick Garrison today.

Year 11 students David Bulmer and Binita Gurung met the Princess Royal as her Sikorsky S76C helicopter touched down on Risedale’s Jaffa playing field at lunchtime.

Risedale’s principal Colin Scott welcomed Princess Anne to Catterick and introduced her to David and Binita before she was whisked away to a prior engagement within the garrison.

Head boy David said: “It was a once in lifetime opportunity and I was really proud to represent Risedale today.”

Head girl Binita added: “I didn’t think that would ever happen to me.

“It was such a privilege to meet Princess Anne”.
