Artistic pupils put their creative skills on show to celebrate earning a prestigious accolade.
Rockcliffe First School, in Whitley Bay, celebrated all things creative with a community arts cafe.
The school has recently been awarded a prestigious Artsmark Platinum Award from the Arts Council for England – making it one of the first schools in the country to achieve the status.
The event began with a mini-carnival parade, led by Bay Brass, an enormous swan and its cygnets.
There was entertainment by the school’s Glee Club and special guest performers.
The Cookery Club served up a delicious menu while an art gallery featured masterpieces by every child in school.
A parent did some henna hand-painting while other visitors put on a range of arts and crafts workshops.
Special guest Tynemouth MP Alan Campbell MP was impressed by the quality of work on display.
