KIND-HEARTED pupils at St Peter's School wore an array of weird and wonderful hats - all part of a fun-filled day to raise money for the Haiti earthquake appeal.
Children put on fancy headgear for the fundraiser which was held last Friday, January. The school raised �260.
Headteacher Sally Roberts said: "The children designed the hats on their own. They were really great.
"Assemblies were held that week where we discussed what had happened in Haiti so they knew what the day was for. Children were naturally very touched and concerned."
