Youngsters who spent hours creating costumes and props for the Mayor’s Newham Show carnival were rewarded with medals for their efforts by Sir Robin Wales.

Children from Years 5 and 6 at Kaizen Primary School in Plaistow, together with their parents, worked for many hours to create the props and costumes for the July carnival.

Newham Mayor Sir Robin Wales visited the school to thank both staff and the students for their efforts and handed out medals to the children who took part.

A spokesman for the school said: “The children and parents actively participated in the carnival procession and stayed for the entire duration of it. The children were very enthusiastic and continued to be lively and entertaining, even in the hot and humid conditions of the day.

”This was a huge achievement for the children and they, together parents and staff, have been looking forward to meeting the Mayor since the carnival.”
