The pupils, aged from 14-18, took part in the popular annual event at Robert Smyth Academy on Burnmill Road on Thursday February 6 - Friday February 7.

And they aim to have raised hundreds of pounds for their two chosen charities – the Teenage Cancer Trust and CLIC Sargent.

Here are Andrew Carpenter's photos from the event.
