IT was a day of fun in the sun.

The Almondbury Schools Community Partnership first family fun day went off without a hitch – and the rain stayed away.

Hundreds of families turned out the event at Almondbury High School on Saturday July 8.

Office staff from the school hosted a cake stall while all members of the partnership had their own stall including sweets and crafts.

'Terry the Terrier' accompanied Town's Community Coaches with the Play-Off Trophy down to the event.

Kids and adults alike lined up for photos with the npower League 1 Play-Off Trophy on its latest stop of its tour of the area since Peter Clarke and the team saw off Sheffield United in the dramatic Wembley Final back in May.

Every person that got their photo taken with the Trophy also received information about season tickets for the upcoming 2012/13 Championship campaign - 'The Game's just got better!'

Enrichment Activity Facilitator Jane Lees said:

“Huddersfield Town 'Terry the Terrier' was very popular as was the play-off winning trophy.

“There were permanent queues at the BBQ and for the face painting.

“In the main hall, the audience saw the first performance from the Almondbury Schools Community Choir and there were individual performances from all of the schools including African drumming from Moldgreen School and Cheerleading from Greenside Infant School.

“The day was a huge success with families saying how nice it was for all of the schools and the children to come together for an event like this.”

Almondbury High School, Lowerhouses Junior and Infants, Almondbury Juniors, Almondbury Infants, Greenside Infant School, Dalton Junior and Infant School and Moldgreen Junior and Infants have created a partnership to help benefit staff and pupils.

Jane said: “The partnership aims to work together to nurture and prepare pupils for life's journey.
