Broadway Infant School in Yate is celebrating after raising over £7,000 to install an outdoor classroom for the children to enjoy.
The Friends of Broadway raised the money from fundraising events including their Christmas fare, film night, a Mad Hatters tea party, Bingo, and race nights.
The majority of the money raised went to buy the outdoor classroom.   However, class teachers were also able to buy specific resources for their own classroom.
Head Teacher Juliet Lambert said: “The new outdoor classroom will mean that Year 1 and 2 children can be taught outside all year around enabling us to offer exciting alternative learning experiences”.
“All the teaching staff are thrilled with this new addition to the school and appreciate the enthusiasm, hard work and dedication of the Friends of Broadway in raising the money for this project to go ahead”
