The Countess visited Connaught Junior School on Thursday to officially open the school’s new STEAM lab, a dedicated space for Science, Technology, Engineering, Art and Maths.

Her visit was also planned to help the school celebrate its 60th anniversary, according to the official Royal Family website.

After touring the lab, the Countess visited the pottery room where she helped a year 5 class make some clay tiles to mark the schools special anniversary.

She then planted a tree with some of the Eco Council in order to mark the late Queen’s green canopy initiative.

Eco Councillors talked to the royal about the projects they are working on at school such as composting with waste food and the need to highlight the dangers plastic can cause the environment.

The Countess rounded off her visit by meeting the school dog Toffee who showed her some of his tricks.
