Westwood Junior School stages World Cup ceremony
FOOTBALL mad youngsters held their own opening ceremony for the World Cup.
As South Africa put on a stunning display in Johannesburg, pupils at Westwood Junior School put on their own spectacle which included Diski dancing to authentic African music, a rendition of the Three Lions football anthem and poetry reading.
Year Six pupils also gave a presentation on a research project about the World Cup to their parents, who attended the assembly.
And it was a dream day for pupils as they were allowed to wear football strips to school instead of their uniform.
Deputy head teacher Simon Linney said: “Our opening ceremony featured practically all the children in the school. We were treated to a stunning series of presentations.”

The school in Maple Grove, March plans to hold more soccer-themed celebrations in the weeks ahead.
