Each of their seven classes wrote their own class prayer and attached it to their balloons.

The class which sees their balloon travel the furthest will win a treat.

Sophie Hutchison from the school said: “The piece of paper these prayers were attached to also asked the finder to call the school if they find it.

“It’s now a waiting game as we are waiting for that all important call so whose balloon with the prayer attached which has travelled the furthest will win a treat for their class.”
