Pupils are looking forward to playing with their new playground equipment thanks to a cash award from the EDP.
Rollesby Primary and Nursery School collected over 500 tokens as part of the EDP's Community Chest Competition.
The primary school with nearly 150 pupils in Main Road, Rollesby, was awarded £500 as part of the Great Yarmouth Mercury's sister-paper's competition.
The school is now hoping to extend the playground using a permeable surface and build an adventure structure which can be used all year round, subject to planning approval.
Headteacher, Louise Hinton, said: 'It is quite exciting and different equipment. It is something active for our children to do at break times.
'We are only a small school, so our budget is fairly limited. We rely on fund-raising and grants to give us additional resources.
'It is going to make a big difference to the children. It will be an all-weather surface that can be used all year around, which will be great.
