Mini bungee jumpers fly through air at Channing Junior School summer fete
Children bounced, spun and flew through the air on a bungee trampoline and transformed into butterflies at Channing Junior School’s summer fete.
The sunny weather brought hundreds of pupils and parents to the annual fair at the all-girls school’s grounds in Highgate High Street on Saturday (June 7).
Children were given a free ticket to try out the small-scale version of bungee jumping. Youngsters also had their faces painted and played a number of traditional fair games, including a tombola.
Helen Tranter, director of development at Channing School, said: “By the time the gates were open, it was really hot and we had hundreds of girls and parents turn up.
“It was a big success.”
