The students, staff and parents of Rowley Park Primary Academy staged a spectacular carnival parade for local residents. Inspired by the books they were been reading in class they designed and made imaginative, colourful costumes. They made shakers, practiced samba drumming and dancing and then set off to make a racket, make a spectacle and raise some smiles.
People waved, people gathered, people hooted horns. The sun shone and it was a great day and a great way to celebrate the high aspirations of a new school.
