Bor­ing sneak­ers or san­dals were re­placed by ev­ery­thing that glit­tered and shone at the Lin­den School Fancy Feet pa­rade last Wed­nes­day.

It was the fifth year the school had taken part in the Movin’March ini­tia­tive, which aims to get school­child­ren walk­ing and bik­ing to school.

Each year Lin­den School puts on a pa­rade and all 90 chil­dren in the school take part by dress­ing up their shoes.

New en­trant teacher Re­becca St Claire headed the pa­rade and made sure the chil­dren looked their best. There were pom­poms fly­ing, bal­loons pop­ping and plenty of feath­ers be­ing stuck on at the last minute.

‘‘It’s to cel­e­brate and en­cour­age chil­dren to walk and run school,’’ she said.

St Claire said her favourite shoes for the pa­rade were a pair an­other teacher made us­ing duct tape and dia­mantes.

‘‘ They looked amaz­ing and were some­thing out of wear­able arts.’’
