Pupils at Barrowby Primary School raised money to create a ‘story circle’ in their wildlife area in memory of a former pupil.
The school’s former headteacher, Sylvia West, donated a story-telling chair when she left the school, and the students raised the money to add more seating. They dedicated the area to Pierre Barnes, who tragically drowned last year aged 12 while on holiday with his family in France shortly after he left Barrowby Primary School for King’s School. The Year 6 youngsters raised money by selling refreshments, organising a fun run and hosting a restaurant night. The students cooked and served the meals, and their parents could pay to attend.
