THERE were some spooky goings on in some of the schools in Dumbarton as children geared up to scare the wits out of their victims for Hallowe'en.

Knoxland Primary School in the town's Leven Street got the festivities under way on Friday when pupils were allowed to attend in full costume.

During the day they had great fun, dooking for apples, reading scary stories and it set them up nicely for their Hallowe'en disco later that day.

On the day there were witches, bad clowns, werewolves, super heroes such as Spiderman and Batman and many, many more.

A spokesperson at the school said: "Thank you to the members of the PTA for giving up their time to organise and run the Hallowe'en discos. It is much appreciated.

"It is also great that we have enough volunteers to chaperone the event. The support of parent volunteers makes a really positive difference to the school."

Meanwhile, over at Ardaran Estate, near Cardross, children got the chance to hone their pumpkin carving skills.

On the day there were a variety of Hallowe'en-themed events to get children in the mood but undoubtedly, the pumpkin carving proved a real winner .

The event ran from 10am-4pm and visitors were encouraged to wear fancy dress.
