THIS was the bizarre surprise waiting in store for pupils returning back to school after the Christmas break.
Youngsters walking through the gates of Kingsgate Primary School in Kingsgate Road, Kilburn, on Tuesday morning for the first day back from the holidays soon spotted giant Papier Mache eggs strewn around their playground.
