School fair at Downshall Primary School, Junur Jamal, age11


Downshall Primary School’s annual summer fair brought together parents, children and teachers to celebrate the end of the academic year.

The event, hosted on Monday by the school’s Parent Teachers Association, included Indian dance and drum performances as well as face painting.

Pupils from the school in Meads Lane, Seven Kings, were also able to enjoy the antics of geese, sheep, rabbits and guinea pigs, provided by Wellgate Community Farm.

Headteacher Ian Bennett said: “The event was very successful – we raised £900 which will go towards new playground equipment and books.”
