CHILDREN at two primary schools were determined to sock it to a national campaign against bullying.

And they were also spot-on in raising cash for the annual Children in Need appeal.

Pupils at Worsbrough Bank End and Hunningley Primary Schools swapped their uniform for colourful clothing, in support of Anti-Bullying Week and Children in Need.

Organised by the Anti-Bullying Alliance, the theme for this year was ‘Choose Respect’.

As part of the initiative, pupils from schools across the UK were encouraged to wear odd socks to show their support.

At both Worsbrough Bank End and Hunningley, as well as donning their odd socks, pupils also created a ‘Wall of Respect,’ featuring their names.

Later that week, pupils of both Barnsley primaries swapped their uniform for something spotty, with each child who took part donating £1 to the popular Children in Need appeal, which took place that day.

All in all, both schools raised almost £800 for the charity.

Nic Thorpe, executive head teacher at Hunningley and Worsbrough Bank End, said: “As a school committed to providing its children with an education with character, we were delighted to be able to support both incredibly important and worthwhile events, which also helped the children to learn about the importance of respect and helping those less fortunate than themselves.”
