Primary school celebrates Jeans for Genes Day
IT was denim delight for youngsters this week as they celebrated Jeans for Genes Day.
Pupils from Annabel’s Montessori School in Lemsford took part in the annual fundraising event, which backs Jeans for Genes – a charity that aims to change the world for children with genetic disorders.
Manju Johal is headteacher at the Brocket Road school, which caters for children aged two-and-a-half to five.
She said the event on Friday October 6 went brilliantly for the youngsters.
“In total we raised �33 from all the children paying �1 to wear their jeans, and all the children loved it, they were really excited,” she said.
