The staff and pupils at Carr’s Glen Primary School in North Belfast are celebrating today after successfully setting a Guinness World Record as part of their 70th Anniversary celebrations yesterday.
The school now holds the world record for having the Largest Gathering of Storybook Characters. With 300 pupils, staff and friends of the school dressed as storybook characters it was a truly memorable day for all.
School principal Derek Harkness said: ‘This is a tremendous achievement for our school and was only possible with great team work from the whole school community. Parents and staff have been working tirelessly over the past few weeks to ensure that we were successful in our attempt. Along the way we hope that this attempt also promoted storytelling in a fun and imaginative way. The event was part of our 70th anniversary celebrations and we are delighted to be 70 years old and World Record Breakers!’
