The day helps to raise funds for Bowel Cancer Guernsey and increase awareness of the symptoms of bowel cancer.
Charity spokeswoman Anne Brouard was thrilled that the day was going ahead once again.
‘This event brings the whole community together for a bit of fun, but it also helps to raise awareness for a disease that can affect anyone,’ she said, adding that she was grateful to all those who got involved.
St Mary & St Michael deputy head teacher Alex Mercer said the school took part in the event every year, and was pleased to be raising money for Bowel Cancer Guernsey.
‘The children have really got into it,’ he said.
‘They are definitely aware of why they are wearing the ties and why they are donating the money. It’s important for them to know about the impact cancer can have on people.’
Mr Mercer added that the school hoped to raise about £140, with students encouraged to each give £1 to the cause.
Finn Greening, 10, said that he had got the blue and pink tie he was wearing specially for Loud Tie Day.
Cara Langlois, 11, explained that the red tie she was wearing was usually only worn by her dad on special occasions.
‘I think he’s had it for quite a while, but he doesn’t wear it very often, so I’m glad I could wear it today,’ she said.
Spencer Rosbrook, 10, decided to wear a tie dedicated to one of his hobbies – computer games.
‘I love playing on my computer at home, probably a bit too much,’ he said.
Faye Austin, 10, said that, because she did not have a tie at home, she and her mum decided to do something a bit different. She made a blue and red paper tie in her favourite colours.
Taylor Mathews, 9, had chosen to wear a pink tie that belonged to her brother. ‘Our teachers are wearing loud ties too,’ she said.
