Commenting, class teacher Elza Stephen said: “It’s nice that the pupils are able to think about others, especially when people are so generous to our school.”

Acting Head teacher Kerry Dalton added: “We want to give back, locally and internationally, as people give so generously to the school.

“I would also like to say a special thank you to the staff of the school who regularly contribute.”
