The Queen’s Baton Relay
Birmingham 2022 is staging the 16th official Queen’s Baton Relay an epic journey across the Commonwealth, with The Queen’s Baton visiting all 72 nations and territories. The Relay began on 7 October 2021, with Her Majesty The Queen placing her message to the Commonwealth into the Baton. The Baton is now on its 294-day long journey to every corner of the Commonwealth. This collective journey will ignite hope, solidarity and collaboration.
In support of this schools in Brighton & Hove have arranged their own baton relay and on Monday 21st March it will be coming to Downs View School. On this day the children are invited to wear anything red, white and/or blue.
The Brighton & Hove baton will equally spread hope, solidarity and collaboration as it visits every school in the city.
