Children from Harold Court Primary School have been busy at home decorating the rainbows and putting them in windows to make people smile.

Among those who have done this are eight-year-old Logan O’Shea, Lily and Ryan Rummell and Dennis Johns, four.

The school, in Church Road, said on its Twitter account that year six teacher Mary Donnelly-Symes has also created a giant rainbow on the fence outside the school to “put a smile on our whole community’s faces”.

Headteacher Lynn Hogan-O’Neill said: “These are challenging times that I never thought I would have to face in my teaching career.

“However, my children, my staff, my parents and our community have been amazing and the rainbows are helping to keep everyone’s spirits up.”
