Weird out­fits helps boost pri­mary school event

The Peterborough Evening Telegraph - - Neighbourhood News -

WACKY chil­dren put on crazy cos­tumes as they en­joyed a day of bad taste.

Ry­hall Church of Eng­land Pri­mary School, in Ry­hall, near Stam­ford, or­gan­ised the day for its pupils ear­lier in the term.

They dressed up in the weird­est clothes they could get their hands on.

The school was filled with clash­ing colours, dated hair styles and more glit­ter spray than the fi­nal of the Strictly Come Danc­ing.

In re­turn for the day out of school uni­form the chil­dren brought a gift into the school.

All the gifts were sold back to the chil­dren at the Christ­mas mar­ket, which was held on Satur­day, De­cem­ber 10.

In a spe­cial room the chil­dren picked an item as a Christ­mas present for their par­ents in se­cret which were then wrapped for them.

Par­ent gov­er­nor at the school, Will Hol­royd was de­lighted with the gen­eros­ity of the chil­dren.

He added: “In this mag­i­cal room the chil­dren get to choose and wrap a se­cret gift for their mum or dad.

“More than 160 gifts were do­nated by the chil­dren and staff and a great day was had by all.”
