YOUNGSTERS at Knox Academy in Haddington shaved their heads and pied their teachers last Friday to raise money for Children in Need.

The school hosted a range of events, with three S6 pupils, Harry Anning, Tyler Dury and Asher Borthwick, holding a sponsored head shave.

Pupils were also able to get revenge on their teachers by throwing pies at them.

The teachers who suffered at the hands of their pupils were Mr Tainsh, Mr Salkeld, Mr Edwards, Miss Borwick, Mr Bristow, Miss Ferguson, Mr Redford and Mr Millar.

Other events the school hosted included a bake sale, while S1-S5 pupils came into school wearing something yellow or spotty and S6 pupils came to school dressed in costume.

Their efforts raised £543.11 for Children in Need.

Children in Need overall raised more than £47.8 million this year, with the money helping thousands of projects across the UK.
