CRAZY and wacky hairstyles were the theme of the day for pupils and staff at Hillside Community First School in Verwood.

They had a great day on Friday, May 4, showing off their colourful creations.

The special day was inspired by reception teacher Kelly Riley, school secretary Debbie Tarrant and teaching assistant Sandra Coates who wanted to raise money for children’s hospice charity Julia’s House

The trio are taking part in the Jurassic Coast Trek on June 10 and thought that the children would love to “go crazy for the day” whilst supporting such a worthwhile cause.

The children were delighted to have raised £203 for Julia’s House, which has hospices in Dorset and Wiltshire.
