Pupils performed a joyful dance called Wahaha, while there was singing from the youth club team in both Mandarain and Cantonese - languages they are taught every Sunday.

Guests included top members of the Chinese embassy Tang Li and Li Hui, along with Greenwich and Woolwich MP Nick Raynsford.

The popular volunteer-run school, which once hosted the event annually, saved up for a staggering three years for the 2014 celebration, having lost funding.
