PUPILS were kings – and queens – for the day as part of a French Epiphany celebration.

Children at Chandlings School in Bagley Wood ate the “Galette des Rois” cakes on Thursday to mark Twelfth Night. Whoever finds a “fève” in their slice has the honour of being king or queen for the day.

Adam Suardi, nine, said: “I love French traditions, the Galette is really, really good.”

And 10-year-old Guiliano Page said: “I am very proud to be king. I shall order everyone to bake me a cake.”
