Cumbria school flying high as special day is marked

PUPILS proved they were real high flyers as they took to the skies with their handmade creations.

Celebrations really took off at Low Furness School as children flew kites to mark Ascension Day.

Youngsters were marking the occasion a week early as this year’s Ascension Day falls during half term this Thursday.

The children were joined in school by parents and other guests who attended a special assembly and helped assemble the kites.

Headteacher Sue Little said: “It’s been a fantastic day. I was a bit disappointed with the weather but what can you do? We do live in Cumbria.

“I’ve been round talking to the children and they really enjoyed it.

“They always enjoy it when the parents come into school and we had an assembly in the morning and all the class contributed and the children learned all about Ascension Day.

“We spent the last hour in the rain flying our kites, which flew really well this year so there were lots of smiling faces and everyone went home happy.”

While a strong wind is great for flying kites, it wasn’t such good news for the school’s flag pole which was recently toppled by a stiff breeze.

But the day proved the perfect opportunity to unveil the school’s new flag pole, which is built from sterner stuff.

Mrs Little said: “I’m looking out of my window and enjoying seeing the Low Furness flag flying.”
