Schoolchildren recently welcomed the Premier League trophy to their school.

The Annunciation Catholic Junior School in Edgware were joined by representatives from the country's biggest and best footballing league.

They also brought coveted silverware along with them - the Premier League trophy - and the Cricket World Cup was also brought into the school as well.

The pupils received the special visit after they won a nationwide competition, Roar for Diversity, which involved the creation of posters promoting and celebrating the importance of diversity.

Year six pupil Joseph said: "Today felt amazing. It was so exciting to see the actual Premier League trophy last lifted by Manchester City. We were all ‘roaring’ for diversity today and were able to celebrate how we treat everyone fairly at our school and celebrate our different backgrounds. It's important the world hears this message."

Watford Football Club mascot Harry the Hornet also joined pupils on July 14 for the special event.

Deputy head teacher Aaron Doherty said: "We pride ourselves on being a wonderfully diverse school and celebrate the importance of diversity in our everyday lives, particularly when working together as a community.

"The children were in awe of the trophies standing proud in our school hall and thoroughly enjoyed the activities they took part in. Most importantly, the visit from the Premier League today acted as a powerful reminder after recent events in football of the importance of diversity in football and every aspect of our lives.

"A big thank you to Natalie Attwell, our P.E Lead, who organised the day."
