Pupils at a new school on the Gascoigne estate wowed parents and teachers on Thursday at a cracker of a Christmas show.
A total of 42 pupils in Years 7 and 8 danced, sang and karate chopped their way through Greatfields School’s first-ever talent show.
“They honestly worked so hard and the standard of performances was excellent,” said head of performing arts Samantha White, 26, who organised the event.
“There’s a lot of talent in our school.”
More than 160 guests, including some governors, attended the jam-packed afternoon of entertainment in the Shaftesburys, Barking.
