A GLENBARR primary pupil dressed as Mrs Twit to launch the school’s World Book Day.

Pupils came to school disguised as their favourite book characters with appearances from Mr Majeika, the ladybird from What the Ladybird Heard and the witch from Room on the Broom.

They took part in several activities linked to their favourite books. In addition the children raised £32.50 for Red Nose day from their ‘wear it red day’ and by purchasing red noses.

This total was increased by P7 pupil Elsie’s enterprise maths project.

Elsie spent her day making and selling empire biscuits, contributing £57 to the school’s final Comic Relief total of £89.50. To support Fairtrade fortnight, Marilyn Shedden visited the school to teach the children a little more about Fairtrade.

The pupils took part in some group activities looking at what was fair and unfair and finished the afternoon off by enjoying some tasty Fairtrade chocolate and fruit.
