CHILDREN were walking the plank and wearing tiaras at Moor Row Primary School – all in aid of charity.

Scurvy buccaneers slashed their swords as the princesses danced as if they were at a ball, as the children hosted a fashion show to show off their costumes
Georgia Parr, a Year 4 student and princess, said: “It’s really fun being a princess.
“The best thing about being a princess is that everyone has to do what you want them to.”
Robyn Henderson, another Year 4 pupil and pirate, said: “I love being a pirate because you can make people scared of you with your sword.
“I chose to be a pirate because it’s fun to fight other pirates.”
The school council organised the event with the children paying £1 with all proceeds going to Eden Valley Hospice. The day raised £90.
Georgia is part of the school council and said: “We chose Eden Valley Hospice because we have raised money for them before and we want to keep raising money for them because it’s such a good cause.”
The school council also has a suggestion box for the children to put in fundraising ideas to pay for new equipment for their playground.
One was a selection of baby pictures of the teachers with entrants donating to guess which baby is which teacher.
