MORE THAN 100 primary school children sang and took part in a vibrant, loud carnival parade.

Pupils from Millhill Primary School paraded to Waterlooville town centre in brightly-coloured insect outfits as part of a carnival theme they are learning about.

Executive headteacher Diane Lowry said: ‘They’ve all made their own costumes, masks and artwork throughout the past half-term so it’s great to give the children a focus for their learning. We like to take the children out and about - we’ve been to St George’s Church before - as children need to know they’re part of the community. It’s great to show people who we are and what we’re about.’

Around 140 pupils played instruments, dressed up and took part in the carnival parade which lasted for more than a hour near the end of the school day.

While pupils and teachers enjoyed the time outside the classroom, they were fundraising for Just Different - a West Sussex charity which aims to improve the lives of disabled and non-disabled children.
