Pupils say ‘good-pie’ to long-serving teacher at Hethersett school

Children said goodbye and thank you to a very special teacher – by putting a pie in her face.

Pupils at Woodside Nursery and Infant School, in Hethersett, joined deputy headteacher Sara Johnston to celebrate the end of term, as well as her 11 years at the school.

Mrs Johnston, who was dressed up as a clown, and the children and members of staff – also in special clown clothes – performed a special session in front of the school's nursery.

The fun and games continued throughout the day, ending with Mrs Johnston having a custard pie in her face.

The teacher, who previously taught at Little Melton First School, has worked both in the nursery and in the main school.
