Pupils take centre stage
PARENTS rolled up for the greatest show on earth as children at Risby Primary School temporarily joined the circus.
Pupils showcased their juggling, plate spinning and diabolo skills during shows with company Circus Ferrel, who held workshops at the school throughout last week.
Christine Anthony, PE co-ordinator at the school, said: “They really enjoyed it. Children who might not necessarily enjoy PE and sport really took to the circus skills.”
Meanwhile, a new £220,000 base for Risby Pre-School and the before and after school club has been built on the village hall playing field.
The building was funded by Suffolk County Council’s Early Years Department and a grant from County Cllr Beccy Hopfensperger.
Emma Curwen, vice-chairman of governors at Risby Primary, said the development allowed the pre-school, which was previously based in the village hall, to operate for longer hours.
She said: “It’s a lovely, light and airy space.”
