Pupils and parents were treated to their very own graduation ceremony at one of the borough’s primary school’s last week.

Mayespark Primary School in Goodmayes Lane, Goodmayes, held the special event to mark the end of its eight-week Families and School’s Together (FAST) program.

At Mayespark, around 35 children took part in the program, which focuses each week on children completing different activities with their families.

Lisha Lai is the school’s FAST coordinator and has been at Mayespark for a year. She was thrilled with the course’s success.

“All the parents really enjoyed being able to come into school and see how their children learned,” she told the Recorder.

“And all the kids that took part have really benefitted from it, so it’s been brilliant.”
