150th Anniversary Fete a Resounding Success

On the 18th of May, Kenninghall Primary School celebrated its 150th anniversary with a memorable fete that combined traditional games, various stalls, and excellent weather. The event, which featured activities like tug of war, welly wanging, beat the goalie, and hook a duck, was a huge success and raised an impressive £3,166 for the school.

The fete was not only a fun-filled day but also a significant fundraiser. The money raised will go towards covering the cost of school trips throughout the year, ensuring all students can participate in enriching educational experiences, including the recent trip to Bewilderwood.

We express our gratitude to the local businesses that sponsored and donated to the event, as well as to the volunteers and attendees who contributed to the fantastic turnout.

Highlights of the day included Pam Rankin, a former student who started at the school in 1939, sharing the occasion with her daughters and current students, showcasing the strong generational ties within the Kenninghall community.

The success of the fete has surpassed fundraising targets, allowing the school to plan an end-of-term party and Leavers’ celebration, alongside fully funding all field trips for the year. The fete's achievements were featured on the front page of the Diss Express, for more details and photos, read the full article on the Diss Express website.

Thank you once again to everyone who supported and participated in making this milestone celebration a day to remember.
