Up in the sky, it’s a bird, it’s a plane, it’s the young­sters of Calder­wood Pri­mary!

The kids were hav­ing a su­per­hero day re­cently, as part of their month-long mi­cro-tyco pro­ject.

The pro­ject was run through the Wild­Hearts group and is aimed at en­cour­ag­ing en­trepreneurs.

It sees teams given a month to turn £1 into as much money as pos­si­ble.

The cash raised then goes to­wards help­ing poor en­trepreneurs in the de­vel­op­ing world.

Among the ideas the kids came up with were an af­ter­noon tea, a Lego chal­lenge , a quiz night and a car wash.

How­ever, ar­guably the most pop­u­lar event was the su­per­hero day, where young­sters dressed as Bat­man, Spi­der-Man and the Teenage Mu­tant Ninja Tur­tles.

Teacher Mau­reen Wad­dell said: “We got 287 pounds for it, so we’re just over £2,000 in to­tal, which is a great amount.

“The quiz night was very pop­u­lar, but the su­per­hero one was amaz­ing - ev­ery­one was hav­ing fun in get­ting dressed up.

“There was quite a few home­made cos­tumes which was great to see too, and all the teach­ers dressed up too - I was Su­per-Teacher!

“The money goes to Wild­Hearts and it can make a big dif­fer­ence to un­der­priv­i­leged peo­ple.”
