Held last Friday, July 7, Mary Matthews cut the ribbon in front of a packed playground before visiting all the stalls and games.

Mrs Matthews also judged the children’s kite making competition, and the crowds were entertained with live music from renowned guitarist Jon Buck.

The fayre celebrated the school’s increasingly strong links with the local community, and featured a display by Bungay Taekwon-Do Club as well as a dance workshop from dance and aerobics teacher Julie Ash.

Ben Potterton from the Earsham Wetland Centre took along some deer, which was popular with children and adults alike.

Visitors also had the chance to win a signed Norwich City football in the raffle.

Veronica Short, executive headteacher, said: “This is a warm and vibrant school with wonderful pupils and a great team of teaching and support staff. I was very proud to open our doors to visitors for our summer faye and enjoyed welcoming everyone to such an enjoyable event.”
