Pupils at Howard Junior School enjoyed an action-packed day

Staff and pupils at Gaywood’s Howard Junior School went all out to raise money for this year’s Children in Need appeal.

The school was awash with yellow and spots galore as youngsters enjoyed a fancy dress competition, games and dancing last Friday.

More than 100 wet sponges were thrown at headteacher Greg Hill when he braved a spell in the stocks and other members of staff were given crazy makeovers by pupils, complete with face paints and wigs.

The school’s reading rabbits Biscuit and Bramble got involved, wearing specially made fancy dress. There was also a cake sale and a giant Pudsey was filled with coins.

More than £800 was raised during the day, thought to be Norfolk’s biggest school-based Children in Need event.
