Children at St John’s Priory School in Banbury have had a fun filled day today (Friday) raising funds for the charity Jeans for Genes day.

Pupils donated £1 to wear jeans to school, alongside entering a ‘customised jeans competition’, which was later judged by deputy headmistress Megan Penn and art teacher Alexander Smith.

The day is an annual event which raises money for Genetic Disorders UK and aims to change the world for children with genetic disorders.

Mrs Penn said: “Life at the Priory is so varied and creative for our children.They love having these special days, where they get to have fun.

“Jeans for Genes Day encourages understanding and acceptance of the differences between us, and the jeans the children wear are a reminder of the genes they’re raising money for.”

The school is also holding an open morning on Friday, September 25 from 10am-noon.
