Staff at a Norfolk school delivered leaver gifts in costume to spread ‘cheer’ to pupils after they missed out during lockdown.
Jack Curl, aka ‘chicken’, and Faye Short, dressed as Howard Junior School’s mascot ‘Howie’, made a special visit to children in King’s Lynn by delivering end of year presents alongside teacher Ash Kirwan on Friday, June 19.
The parcels were hand delivered to the school’s year 6 leaver pupils who had not returned to school this term, to thank them for being “wonderful”.
Mr Kirwan said: “We thought that by delivering the presents in costume it would bring them some cheer and create some final memories for their time at primary school.
“The pupils were both shocked and pleased to see us with comments that they were missing teachers and other pupils.
