Pupils and staff of St Mary’s Hare Park Primary School and nursery celebrated the royal wedding with a tea party as they unveiled their new mosaic designed by every body at the school.
Headteacher Mrs Karwacinksi - or Mrs K to most people - explained that students from the ages of two all the way up to 11, dinner ladies, teachers, and all members of staff helped build the mosaic that features the school motto - Facta non verba (Actions not words) - over six days.
Former Mayor of Havering, Linda Van den Hende unveiled the mosaic in one of her last duty’s in cloak and chain.
Mrs K told the Recorder that it was a “wonderful” afternoon at the school in South Drive, Gidea Park, organised by the school PTA and thanked the 50 or so parents that had helped out.
She said: “It was a spectacular tea party.
“Every child designed their own wedding flags and we had a competition and every child from two to 11 years old was awarded for their best efforts.
“We spent six days building the mosaic and it it was a real community effort.
“We had it on the floor in the school hall and we had PE Lessons and everything around it.”
