They had to pass modules demonstrating their communication skills and ability to lead groups, plan lessons, and organise an all-school sports event.

Youngsters were given free rein to come up with as silly a hair style as they could in aid of Diabetes UK.

The cause was chosen as one of the pupils at the school had diabetes.

In all, some £190 was raised for those affected by the condition.

Each year group received a specialist training session.

The event coincided with Sport Relief and the children were encouraged to wear their sports kits for the day.
