The Newham Carnival may be a distant memory of warmer weather for most people - but not for pupils at Gainsborough Primary School.

Youngsters at the Gainsborough Road, West Ham school were presented with medals and a silver salver from the mayor of Newham, Sir Robin Wales, after they were named the best school participants.

Pupils danced and cheered their way through the carnival, which took place in East Ham in July, dressed as bats and covered in glitter and jewels.

They were supported in their preparation by arts charity Emergency Exit Arts.

Headteacher Deborah Strain said: “What an excellent first carnival for Gainsborough Primary School.

“I am very proud of the enthusiasm and energy shown by pupils, parents and staff. What an amazing fun day we all had and I look forward to taking part next year.”
