PUPILS leapt, dodged and vaulted a number of obstacles as they braved an adventure trail.

The children at Sebert Wood Primary, in Bury St Edmunds, completed as many laps of the challenge as they could in half an hour at the nearby Pond Covert woods and around the school site.

They received sponsorship to raise funds for the Sebert Road school.

The activity featuring logs as obstacles co-incided with Sebert Wood’s half term event Fitness Friday.

Jo Plumb, PE co-ordinator, said: “The pupils really enjoyed it and were talking with each other about how many laps they had completed all afternoon.

“They wanted to carry on and do more which was really good to hear.”

n FOUR students from King Edward VI, in Bury, jetted to a school in Poland to develop and share their leadership skills.

The 14 to 15-year-olds joined students from across Europe to take part in charity work and volunteering in Bialystok, where they also lived with a Polish family for a week.

It was part of the two year European Commission project Comenius to promote co-operation and communication between schools in Europe.

King Edward VI is leading on the project, which also involves partner schools in Spain, Finland and Germany.

n FUND-RAISERS at Thurston Primary amassed £1,296 for Sport Relief following a sponsored ‘Walk the Mile’ and non-uniform day.

In a school assembly the week before, pupils were told about the plight of children in Sierra Leonne.

Sue Moore, Year 4 teacher, said: “Our aim was to raise £100 to pay for one new well to be built. They certainly rose to the challenge. All the staff are very proud of their efforts.”

n BARNINGHAM Primary celebrated May Day with May pole dancing and cakes.

Nine-year-old pupil Molly Porter was crowned the May Queen.

n THE chapel choir from Old Buckenham Hall, in Brettanham Park, hit the high notes during a lunchtime recital at St Edmundsbury Cathedral on Monday.
