A leavers' party marked the end of an era for children from a Burnley primary school.


Year six pupils from St Mary Magdalene's RC Primary School were given VIP treatment at the party including specially made "mocktail' drinks, a sweetie cart and hot dog treats.

Ighten Leigh Club in Burnley even screened the World Cup match between Belgium and Brazil for the youngsters to enjoy.

Organised by a group of parents, there was a disco and a photo booth with a selection of props for the children to dress up in.

The pupils now only have just under two weeks left at the school in Wellfield Drive before they break up for the summer holidays followed by the start of their new adventure at high school.
