The theme of this year’s event was “bright colours” and “carnival”, with pupils turned out in eye-catching tutus, headdresses and jewellery.

Each class got the chance to boogie and follow routines staged by Sparken Hill Academy’s after-school dance club, the Sparkles Dance Squad.

Clare Campbell, parent liaison officer at the school, said the day was thoroughly enjoyed by staff and pupils alike.

She said: “The Sparkles Dance Squad has been practicing for weeks. The day was a great success and a great end to the week.”
