PUPILS at Rackham School at Witchford abandoned their school uniforms and dressed as pets for the day, as the school set about raising funds for the Wood Green animal charity.

Children arrived in school dressed in a myriad of different costumes, from a colourful parrot, to dogs, cats and even a unicorn, and paid for the privilege of wearing their pet outfits.

At the beginning of the day, the school welcomed community fund raiser Caroline Willis to an assembly. She told the youngsters about how the charity cares for different pets, re-homing animals and offering a support to pet owners.

The school raised £190 for the charity. Wood Green spokesman Tara Dundon said: “We would like to thank everyone at Rackham School for all their support.

“We would also be interested to hearing from any other school that would like to hold their own ‘dress for pets day.”
