Flying the flags

4th June 2010 at 01:00

The pupils of Hillhead Primary in Wick marked the beginning of the 2010 World Cup with a whole-school aerial photograph alongside the 32 flags of the countries which qualified for the finals in South Africa (right). The school council is to hold a World Cup Evening next week for pupils, staff and parents, with pupil art competitions and football- related activities, such as having your photograph taken with a World Cup replica, Wii football headers, designing your own football shirt fridge magnet and beat the goalie. Even the school's vegetable plot will feature a scarecrow dressed in football kit for the duration of the competition. Hillhead's flagpole is used to flying a number of national and fun-related flags throughout the year to mark specific events and celebrations.
