Fish balls and Irish dancing as Chadwell Heath school hosts cultural celebration
Jamaican patties, Jewish fish balls and samosas were just some of the food on offer to celebrate a multicultural day at a school in Chadwell Heath.
More than 200 people visited Newbridge School in Gresham Drive to watch Irish and Sikh dancers and listen to a bagpipe player.
Harvey Sharpe, 64, who organised the event, said: “I’ve had lots of feedback and everyone said it was fantastic. I just want people to help raise the profile of the school. We had enough food for 175 people and at the end all the food had gone.”
Students from Redbridge College, Barley Lane, Little Heath, made the food and sent four students along to help serve it.
The event, held of Saturday, involved lots of dancing and the Mayor of Redbridge Cllr Muhammed Javed even had a go at playing the bagpipes.
