Children and adults at St James’ CE Primary School in Emsworth took part in ‘The Dahlicious Dressing Up Day’ on Tuesday, September 13 to raise money for ‘Roald Dahl’s Marvellous Children’s Charity’.

Everyone dressed as their favourite Roald Dahl character before showing off their costumes at a parade in the school hall. The day also celebrates the centenary of the legendary story-teller, who was born on September 13, 1916.

Guests Matthew Inker, manager at the Emsworth office of Henry Adams and his colleague Dee Tickner, community liaison coordinator, were invited to award badges to the deserving winners.

Fantastic Mr Fox, George with his marvellous medicine, Matilda, Augustus Gloop, The Enormous Crocodile, Oompa Loompas and Violet Beauregarde were among those taking part.

Matthew and Dee were particularly impressed when one innovative Yr 6 child arrived as Roald Dahl himself, turning up in a homemade aeroplane and explaining, “I am Roald Dahl when he was a pilot during the war.”

To crown a very enjoyable and imaginative day for all involved, the lessons and activities for the day were all based around Roald Dahl’s many wonderful books.
