Diamond Jubilee: Old East End community comes out at Plaistow’s New City Primary
Youngsters at New City Primary school had such fun at their Jubilee party that they did not want to go home at the end of the day.
Staff at the Plaistow school arrived early to prepare the premises for a day that was full of fun for children and adults.
There was fancy dress, bouncy castles as well as face painting followed by a special Diamond Jubilee picnic prepared by the school’s catering staff.
The party concluded with singing Rule Britannia and God Save The Queen and the release of several hundred red, white and blue balloons.
Local councillors and a Pearly King and Queen joined the celebrations at the school’s two playgrounds.
