Pupils and staff at a Suffolk elementary school held a community carnival as the young people were treated to a ‘big farewell’ ahead of summer break.
Bardwell Primary School, near Bury St Edmunds, welcomed the villagers as students participated in sessions such as dancing, signing and poetry last Friday.
After the performances ended, the children worked as a team to organize their company fair – which also served as a fundraiser for the school’s parent-teacher association.
Michelle Boyd, the school’s acting deputy principal and main event organizer, said: “We just had to celebrate our brilliant school and our village by bringing music, laughter and color to the streets of Bardwell. .
“We are delighted with the number of people who came to make noise and are really impressed with all the costumes, which were made by parents and caregivers.
