Superheroes at Falcons Pre-Preparatory School for Boys recently participated in a 'funathalon', raising more than £3,000 for their charity of the year.

Determined pupils dressed up as their favourite superhero and competed in an energetic assault course on March 9.

Headmaster, Andrew Forbes said: “The boys had a great amount of fun dressing up as their favourite superheroes to race around the assault course.

"A personal highlight for them was seeing their favourite teachers being ‘cream pie-d’.

“At the Falcons Pre-Preparatory School for Boys, we encourage our pupils to participate in charity initiatives throughout the year. It was heart-warming to see them raising money with such enthusiasm.”

To raise much-needed funds for chosen charity Syria Relief, the boys were sponsored to tackle the challenge as quickly as possible.

The impressive amount raised on the day contributed to the school’s overall fundraising total which supports the House of Daraa, a school established to provide a safe space for orphaned children in Syria to play and learn.

Excited and ambitious pupils donned their best outfits to tackle the challenging course, which saw a colourful array of sporting stars and classic heroes participating such as Batman and Captain America.
