Pupils at Andover Primary took part in a house challenge fashion show on Monday where pupils were challenged to create an outfit out of previously used materials: and they certainly rose to the challenge.

Outfits ranged from a wedding dress to a Roman themed fancy dress outfit.

Pupils from primary one through to primary seven bravely volunteered to model the outfits and were cheered on by their friends and classmates as they strutted their stuff down the catwalk.

The event was organised by primary two teacher, Mrs Bell, who works with the House Captains to promote Andover’s House System.

“This challenge was aimed at encouraging the children to work together and show respect for each other within a fun activity,” said Mrs Bell.

“The children have done a fantastic job and the Andover staff are really proud of their effort.”

Staff and pupils were joined by two guest judges, Jennifer Tait from Sunrise in the High Street and Leonie from Brechin High School, who had the difficult task of choosing the winners. Archie Croll and Cain Anderson helped pupils from Strathmore win the prize for Best Overall Outfit whilst Abbie Reid and Kayleigh Cameron, from Panmure, modelled outfits which won the Best Use of Materials category.

Dalhousie won the two awards of Best Accessories and Most Likely To Be Worn and had outfits modelled by Kyle Walker, Gwen Ogilvie, Dasha Keith and Dagen Keith.

Finlay Grieve and Lee Robertson wowed the judges with a fierce catwalk stomp to win Best Models for Southesk.

The teachers’ award was given to Liam Strachan who impressed everyone with his confidence and good humour.

The house captains are looking forward to helping organise their next House Challenge for later in this term.
