St Joseph's Primary School Parents Teachers and Friends Association (PTFA) are trying to raise �6,000 towards the cost of a large wooden play structure for the playground.

PTFA chairman Diane Logan said: "The play equipment will take the shape of Noah's Ark so we thought it was apt to ask pupils to come to school dressed as animals or with an animal mask, as part of the fundraising activities."

Other events included a rainbow raffle, with pupils in each class donating prizes of a designated colour, so that together they had prizes in all the colours of the rainbow. Children also arrived with small bags of change, using the coins to fill in an outline of the ark sketched on the playground surface.
