Students and staff in Dagenham held their own Glastonbury-style festival last week.
Sydney Russell School in Parsloes Avenue, kicked off four days of dance, music and speeches showcasing pupils’ talents.
‘Glasto’ involved daily half-hour performances ranging from ukulele songs to talks on the importance of roast dinners.
A spectacular finale ushered the school in Parsloes Avenue into half term, where a crowd decked out in house colours enjoyed a face painting stall, photo booth and staff flash mob.
