Thanks to the fund-raising efforts of parents’ association Friends of Little Gonerby School, all the pupils were treated to a trip to the Guildhall on Monday to see this year’s pantomime, Aladdin.
Through events like summer fayres, parents’ quiz nights and children’s discos, the group have raised thousands towards not only trips but also an outdoor classroom, play equipment, a revamp of the old library, and IT equipment.
Co-chair of the group, Penny Pulfrey, said: “It’s not just about raising funds to make a difference - a lot of the activities we do are more to engage the school community and create social events for the children and families.”
Headteacher Helen Hilton said: “I am so proud of the Friends of Little Gonerby School - the team are so dedicated and have helped the school with many projects that we simply could not do without the extra funds.
“Also they create a calendar of events that really bring our school community together. I would like to thank all of the friends, parents and families for supporting all the activity. The children have had a fantastic time going to see Aladdin together and it would not have happened without everyone’s support.”
