Members of rainbow, beaver, cub, brownie, guide and scout groups in Nailsea wore their uniforms to school to celebrate World Thinking Day.

World Thinking Day was established in 1926 and is celebrated by scout and guide associations around the world on February 22.

The groups are encouraged to think about scouts and guides in different countries and consider the meaning of Guiding and its global impact.

More than 125 pupils from Golden Valley Primary School, in Nailsea Park, took part in the international celebration.

The young people were also encouraged to speak out on the different issues that affect them and fundraise for members of the guiding and scouting community all over the world.

Kevin Lynch, headteacher at Golden Valley Primary School, said: “It was a pleasure and a privilege to see so many children demonstrate their commitment to helping each other and explaining their thoughts about the world they live in.”
