Goodmayes Primary marked the end of its summer term by celebrating the “culturally rich environment in which we live”.
Workshops in Bollywood dancing, henna hand designs and African head wraps were among the many things on offer at the school’s “diversity day” on July 11.
The event culminated a term of work on the topic, which has seen children learn about a wide range of its pupils’ backgrounds.
Deputy head Marianne Enchill-Balogun said it had been “lovely” having pupils, parents and staff working together as a community.
“Throughout the topic, a lot of people have learnt lots about each other and some people have learnt a lot about themselves I think,” she added.
