Four choirs celebrated spring at its inter-schools festival.

Rise Park Infants School hosted the festival organised by Havering Music School, which included Pinewood School, Crownfield Infants and Clockhouse Primary School.

The children, aged six to seven, had practised for several weeks before the show, and sang songs about spring, as well as playing instruments.

Carolyn Fox, headteacher of Rise Park School, said: “We were really pleased with the event and the children behaved impeccably. The event was enjoyable and the choirs had prepared really well.”

It was attended by Mayor of Havering, Cllr Lynden Thorpe; Cllr Andrew Curtin, Cllr Mike Armstrong; and Gary Griffiths and Mike Coy from Havering Music School
