A Harpenden prep school has raised £5,000 for a charity which provides school meals to countries around the world.
Year 8 pupils at Aldwickbury School organised a bazaar which included a marble run, a Go Kart race track and a Nerf Gun train target, as well as a chocolate tombola, Lego tower challenge and a snowboard simulator.
Staff members volunteered to go into stocks and have sponges thrown at them.
All the money raised went to Mary’s Meals, which provides one meal a day in places of learning in 15 different countries.
Year 5 pupil Daniel Peel said: “I think the Bazaar was great because so many people came and everyone was enjoying themselves and the Year 8 boys set up such great stalls. I think supporting Mary’s Meals was a good idea because we are helping children to gain an education and to feed them.”
