It's been a busy few weeks leading up to the half-term break for schools and colleges around Norfolk.
Students and staff at Firside Junior School, part of The Wensum Trust, gathered to celebrate the official opening of their refurbished and improved library - thanks to the fundraising efforts of the Friends of Firside. They were joined by Tom Blofeld, owner and author of BeWILDerwood, and Mildred the Crocklebog. Roz Robinson, the school's headteacher, said that "a welcoming, vibrant and modern space where children can come and explore the books we have is vitally important to the school".
Six students from the College of West Anglia travelled to Kenya to undertake voluntary work for two weeks with the charity Mama Kerry.
It was part of their graduate activity for the National Citizenship Programme which helps 15 to 17 year olds build their skills. The students completed essential work to improve the learning environment for the pupils at Mama Kerry Hope Academy.
Alina, Sruthi and Anoushkha of Springwood High School won the 2018-2019 Cleantech challenge. They produced a project that focused on creating a Bio-fuel car and visited a research and development center as part of the presentation process.
