PUPILS are building bridges for the future in an inter-school challenge.

In the first of a series of events between the schools within the Whitcliffe Primary Parliament, the children took part in a marshmallow tower building competition, and a Lego competition.

The marshmallow event took place at Scholes Primary School, and the following day pupils visited High Bank in Hightown for the Lego championship to build a chair sturdy enough for Coco the clown to sit on.

Ten primary schools took part and Marcus Newby, headteacher at East Bierley, said it was a great success.

“It lets the children get to know each other because ultimately they all come together at high school,” he said.

“It builds great community links and it’s a great way for them to make new friends.

“We hope there will be more events in the new year.”
