Ice creams and a barbecue kept hunger at bay as pupils ran stalls ranging from human fruit machines to cross bar challenges and target practices.

The Parents' and Friends' Association also helped out with a bouncy castle, rodeo bull, inflatables and face painting.

The Welsh Wizard DJ kept the crowd entertained while the top prize up for grabs in the raffle - an X-Box - drew an expectant crowd towards the end.
