PURPLE was the colour at a Chalfont St Peter school as pupils and staff recognised an international awareness day.

Youngsters at Robertswood School ditched their uniform for the day to dress in purple coloured clothing on Wednesday, March 26.

The Denham Lane school was marking Purple Day, the international awareness day for epilepsy, in conjunction with the Epilepsy Society charity based just up the road.

Two days previously the charity hosted the Robertswood children for an awareness talk to help them understand the condition and know what to do if they see someone having a seizure.
