FRIENDSHIP and fun were the order of the day for children at Barley First School when they took part in Save the Children's Friendship Friday.
Pupils were encouraged to come to school in "fun" clothes, in exchange for a donation to the charity.
They spent the day taking part in activities focusing on the work of Save the Children worldwide.
Sue Jagelman, Barley School governor, is a Save the Children volunteer.
She said: "Friendship Funday is a wonderful opportunity for children to think about what friendship really means to them and to other children around the world.
"Learning about the lives of children in other countries and how their own fundraising can save children's lives made the day even more worthwhile."

They also learned about the work Save the Children has been doing in the aftermath of the earthquakes in the Far East.
Sue said: "Natural disasters like the recent ones in Burma and China put thousands of children's lives at risk.
"Our children need to become the global citizens of the future and be ready to reach out in friendship to those in need.
