Pupils at a Christchurch primary school that was closed after a fire ripped through several classrooms earlier this month have been having fun and keeping fit.

South New Brighton School is due to re-open on Thursday but in the meantime the Youth Alive Trust has been running programmes to keep the pupils busy.

The school was closed after the fire damaged three classrooms on March 6.

The pupils have been at the Christchurch School of Gymnastics this week to take part in activities, including trampolining, rope swinging and wall climbing.
