PUPILS and teachers at Blackfen School for Girls in Sidcup donned Asian and African clothes to raise £600 for an Indian street school.

A year 10 class from the school, on Blackfen Road, organised the money-raising celebrations on May 10 during International Week to promote diversity and inclusion and raise cash for the Eureka Super Kidz Street School in Chennai, south India.

Staff and students took part in a fashion show and were given the chance to buy henna tattoos and exotic jewellery and taste food from around the world.

Pupil Eloise Crossman, aged 15, said: "We are trying to help raise money for a school that literally holds lessons on the side of the street.

"They have one hut which has no electricity and they use one mobile phone for light.

"They have asked if our school would help provide basic equipment such as pencils, sharpeners and rubbers."
