Dahlicious day at Crossways
5:22pm Monday 30th September 2013 in News
WITH Oompa Loompas, a handful of Matildas, Willy Wonkas and one giant peach roaming the corridors of Crossways Infant School in Thornbury, visitors would have been forgiven for thinking they had landed right in the middle of a Roald Dahl novel - or three.
Pupils took their charity Dahlicious Dress Up Day very seriously, turning up to class as perfect replicas of the author's many loved characters including the Fantastic Mr Fox, Charlie, and the big friendly giant on Friday, September 27.
Thanks to their dress-up sense they succeeded in raising £94.70 towards funding for specialist nurses and equipment for seriously ill and disabled children.
Head teacher Mark Toogood said “The children's costumes were fantastic. The school was full of Fantastic Mr. Foxes, Willy Wonkas, BFGs and Oompa Loompas."
