A HAMMERHEAD shark and Mr Messy were just some of the colourful characters that could be found at Queen Elizabeth Junior Grammar School.
Pupils and staff donned fancy dress to raise money for the school’s first charity day of the academic year. They had to dress as something beginning with the first letter of their surname.
Clowns, surgeons, boxers, flamingos, wizards and cowboys helped raise cash for the children’s charity The Variety Club, which will pay for Christmas parties for sick, disabled and disadvantaged children across Yorkshire.
Headteacher Louise Gray, who dressed as Grumpy from the Seven Dwarves, said: “The day was a tremendous success, and there is always a great buzz in the air.
“All the boys and staff did so well to come dressed in so many imaginative costumes, and there was a lot of laughter.
“The school is delighted to have supported The Variety Club who make such a big difference to children’s lives”
Each class also ran a stall selling goodies and parents and friends came along for afternoon tea and cakes.
