Barrow infant school pupils lead their own carnival

PRIMARY school pupils took to the streets with a history-themed carnival parade.

Brisbane Park Infant School pupils led the way along with the Barrow mayor, Councillor Marie Derbyshire, and mayoress Lorraine Biggins, the “Family Learning” parents group and the Submariners Association members.

The carnival started at the Barrow school, then went up Blake Street, on to Hartington Street, down Chatsworth Street, along Bath Street and finished at the all-weather pitch by the school.

Year one pupils dressed up in First World War outfits along with their handmade spitfires, submarines and tanks, made out of cardboard boxes.

Year two pupils had a Victorian and Mary Poppins theme with the headteacher, Pat Burton, joining them dressed as a penguin.

The reception pupils dressed in a “swinging sixties” theme and the nursery children celebrated the 40th anniversary of the nursery opening.

Cheryl Hagan, a Year one teacher said: “Some of the children prefer the arts side of school and the carnival gives them the opportunity to shine. They really enjoy it.”
