FILBY Primary School pupils had an exceptionally eventful last week of term.

It started with the whole school visiting Banham Zoo, the rain held off and everybody had a great time.

Children were given the opportunity to touch several animals, including a rat and a cockroach.

Then the school said a very fond farewell to head teacher, Margaret Baker.

A special assembly was held to thank Mrs Baker for all her hard work and dedication to the school over the last 12 years. The children performed songs and music, a special poem written for Mrs Baker.

She was presented with several gifts from children, staff and parents including a painting of the school and a pair of herons for her garden. Everyone enjoyed refreshments, including a special cake.

Mrs Baker gave her thanks for all the lovely gifts and good wishes she has received from so many people.

The holidays started a day early as the school had no electricity. Thankfully power was restored by the afternoon, just in time for the end of term BBQ.

Despite the weather the event was very well attended and a fantastic £1152 was raised for school funds.
