Students and teachers at Tyssen Primary School in Stamford Hill took justice into their own hands when they dressed up as superheroes for charity on Friday.

The special day was held to raise money for teacher Hannah Greene’s trek through the Alps in September.

Hannah was sadly diagnosed with multiple sclerosis 18 months ago, and is undertaking the three-day hike to raise cash and awareness for the MS Trust.

“The school are amazing, and have been so very supportive,” said Hannah, who has taught at Tyssen, in Oldhill Street, for nearly 10 years.

“They let me organise the whole thing. The children absolutely loved the day, as you can imagine.”
