Pupils at a Goodmayes school joined children across the country to perform a mass dance in celebration of World School Milk Day.
Schoolchildren and teachers at Mayespark Primary School, in Goodmayes Lane, got moving and shaking yesterday to celebrate the white stuff, and learn about the key role milk plays in keeping children healthy.
Headteacher Christine Lamb said the event was “a fun learning experience”.
She explained: “We decided to get involved in World School Milk Day in order to raise the awareness of how important it is for pupils to drink milk as part of a healthy lifestyle.
“We want pupils to understand the health and nutrition benefits in drinking milk and actively encourage them take ownership in leading healthy lives.”
The day was promoted by The Dairy Council, who held the dance competition as part of a nationwide campaign to get children learning about milk.
