ALIENS paid a visit to a school and brought a host of weird and wonderful food.

Pupils at St Mary’s J & I School, Sowerby Bridge, feasted on meteoroid mango, rocket salad and star fruit as part of an Out of this World lunctime.

The meal-time visit by men from Mars was arranged to celebrate the school earning Healthy School status.

Pupils and staff dressed as astronauts and aliens and tried healthy snacks that some of the children had never had before.

Ashley Nelson, who was part of the organising committee, said: “As a Healthy School we aim to make sure all our children enjoy healthy lunches.

“Through our Out of This World Lunchtime our pupils have been able to try lots of unusual fruit, vegetables and other snacks they might not normally have tried.”

The Healthy Schools scheme was set up by the Department of Education to help schools promote and improve health and wellbeing throughout their lives.
