PUPILS celebrated St George's Day with a medieval banquet and dances.
They marked the national occasion in style on Monday, thanks to non-profit housing provider Muir Group.
Muir, which manages about 100 social housing properties in the area, provided £500 and two marquees for the activities at Rivacre Valley Primary.
The 123 children, joined by staff, dressed up as princesses and knights for the fun and games.
The programme included a morning of classroom activities with a medieval theme, a banquet and a pig roast which the children's families were invited to, medieval dances and music and a traditional maypole.
Headteacher Kate Lee said: 'The children had been busy practising their medieval dances and making their costumes. They love any opportunity to dress up.
'It is important for the children that we mark our national day.
'Both the banquet and the morn-ing's classroom activities gave them the chance to experience something new.'
Miss Lee said St George's Day was a double celebration as the school was awarded the Inclusion Quality Mark in February for its work in the community.
'We aim to involve all children regardless of their ability or interest, so we are thrilled to get this recognition of our efforts,' she explained.
Muir Group's Sarah Lawton said: 'Both we and the school place a high priority on community, so we were delighted to be supporting its St George's Day celebrations. The children's excitement is infectious.'
Muir Group will be managing a further 90 homes in Rivacre Village, a new development built by Bellway Homes next to the school.
Half are for rent and the other half for shared ownership targeted at the over-60s.
Some are already occupied with others becoming available next week, and later on this spring and summer.
