Hastings Day 2023

Updated: Oct 30, 2023

In 1066, on the 14th of October, the Battle of Hastings was fought between the Norman-French army led by William the Duke of Normandy and England's army led by King Harold II. This historical battle, won by the Duke of Normandy, has shaped our way of life and has become a special annual observation for Belmont students.


Students roamed the castle corridors, classrooms, and courtyard dressed as knights, Vikings, peasants, princesses, princes, queens, blacksmiths and more.



With the help of our wonderful parent volunteers (Thank you!), our school was transformed into a medieval castle, bringing this years celebration to life.




After gracing their king with a lovely Latin tune, students feasted in the great hall on roasted chicken legs, meat platters, and decadent pies.




Our upper school students were challenged with the great task of translating the Bayeux Tapestry that consists of 58 Latin scripted scenes of the infamous Battle of Hastings.



All the merriment and joy of an eventful medieval adventure brought our first quarter of the year to a lively end. We cannot thank our parent volunteers enough for the time and effort they put into transforming our school into a medieval castle and helping set up, prepare, and serve our medieval feast. Without all of you, this would not have been possible.
