Schoolchildren were awash with blue and white in celebration of Yom Ha’atzmaut - the national day of Israel - last week.
The day began with pupils at the Ilford Jewish primary school, in Forest Road, Ilford, being welcomed into the playground with Israeli music and staff dancing with the nation’s flags.
The school’s Israeli Dance Group performed and this was followed by the Shiluvim Koli’im Group from Israel.
In addition, some children went on an imaginary trip to Israel whilst others made cards for Israeli soldiers.
