But that is exactly what pupils of Isaac Newton Academy School on Tuesday.

More than 40 Ilford residents were treated to a music and dance performance as part of a festive celebration put on by Years 7, 8 and 9 from the school in Cricklefield Place, Ilford.

Rachel Macfarlane, the academy’s principal, said: “The community party is an excellent opportunity for our students to give something back.

“It is an occasion when students and staff work together as a team to host an event that puts a smile on the faces of elderly residents of Ilford and lifts the spirits of everyone involved.”
