WE go back 20 years for today's Days of the Old School Yard when schoolchildren were held spellbound by a green fairy tale.
In fact, nursery youngsters voted their first taste of "green" issues absoultely magic.
The children, who attended Calverton School nursery class back in 1989, but who now have youngsters of their own, were treated to a magical play with a topical green message.
It told the story of a witch who drops litter in a mystical forest and is taught a sound lesson by the good fairies.
The play was performed by students on a parent and childcare course run by Newham Parents Centre. Part of the 18-month course was a drama section leading to a performance.
They chose to put on The Magic Forest for youngsters at the school in King George Avenue, Custom House.
