Pupils have had a chance to ex­act re­venge on those pesky teach­ers at Gal­lowhill Pri­mary School – and man­aged to raise some money at the same time.

The stock­ades were dusted down and brought back into ac­tion at the Pais­ley school as the pupils paid for the priv­i­lege of pelt­ing their teach­ers and jan­i­tors with wet sponges.

Head­teacher She­lia Hood was game for a laugh as she put her­self up for a soak­ing and teacher Craig McLaugh­lin also put his face on the line for the good of the school.

The pupils also got some pay back for all the times jan­nie Tom Downs had given them a tick­ing off for drop­ping lit­ter in the play­ground as he was sub­jected to the wet sponge treat­ment.

A big hats-off to the game teach­ers and staff for putting their faces up for a pum­melling.

It was all fun and games on the day and the pupils and staff man­aged to raise a fan­tas­tic £180 for school funds which will go to­wards or­gan­is­ing school trips.
