Pupils dress as pirates for Luck Lane school opening.
YOUNGSTERS dressed as pirates for a ribbon-cutting ceremony to officially open the new Luck Lane primary school at Royds Hall Community School in Paddock.
All the children held a part of the ribbon, which was cut by Eva Plowright and Ismail Malik, the oldest boy and girl at the secondary and Hishaam Khalil and Aaliyah Patten, who are the youngest.
The opening of Luck Lane school coincides with the 95th anniversary of Royds Hall school.
A time capsule containing work created by youngsters from Royds' other feeder school, Beech School at Golcar, on the topic "What will life be like in 2050?" and drawings by the children at Luck Lane was also buried under a playground pirate ship.
The pirate ship was installed by Hampshire-bsed playground equipment manufacturer Hand Made Places and pirate props were provided by vintage furniture supplier O'Brien's, of Paddock.
Slaithwaite-based performing arts company Satellite Arts staged a spectacular pirate show for the children, which included acting, singing and magic. Youngsters also enjoyed a pirate-themed lunch and every student and member of staff received a cake to mark the secondary school's 95th anniversary.
