SAFETY came first at St Joseph’s as the Todmorden primary school held a bonfire festival.
The event, which saw children wearing bright clothing and parents selling cakes, raised £115 for the school’s Parent Teachers Association (PTA).
Headteacher Maria Cooper said: “The bonfire festival was organised by the PTA and parent brought buns, cakes and biscuits with a bonfire theme, They also made toffee apples.
“The day was all to do with health and safety and keeping safe for bonfire night. Everybody had a lovely time and lots of parents got involved. All round it was a really exciting time.”
For the special day, pupils were encouraged to turn up to school in clothes that had a “be bright, be seen” theme - so they could be seen by motorists when crossing the road.
The message was reinforced by Calderdale Road Safety Team, who came into give a special talk.
Pupils also got the chance to show off their creative sided with a rocket building competition using Duplo and a bonfire-themed colouring-in competition.
There was also a raffle and Calderdale’s Family Support Services had a stall offering advice to parents.
