" I thank all the pupils for their hard work and colourful cards and all the teachers for encouraging the pupils," said the Mayor, Cllr Mercy Umeh. " It wasn't an easy decision to make however the designs from Milly, Naamiya and Alison really stood out."
The Mayor recently awarded the three pupils with a £25 gift voucher, while the pupils’ headteachers were presented with an official London Borough of Hammersmith & Fulham plaque and a box of Christmas chocolates for the school.
