Exactly 229 people dressed up as sunflowers on the day - the highest number of people to ever have done so before was 116. School business manager Helen Cooper came up with the idea to go for a world record after looking through the Guinness World Record book with her son. Pupils and staff created their own sunflower head-dresses and green trousers handmade by parents and grandparents with material donated by the PTA were sold for the occasion. The sale of the trousers raised £260 which will go to the Childrens Liver Disease Foundation. The school is currently awaiting official confirmation of their achievement.
