Mendip Green Primary School held its annual fete on Saturday.
The school’s year four pupils performed country dance, its year one, two and three pupils performed street dance and there was a visit from Puxton Park representatives, the scouts and the school’s chosen charity for this year, the RNLI.
Mendip Green’s pupil and family support advisor Lorraine Young told the Mercury afterwards: “The sun may not have come out but people certainly did and the fete was packed with fun and laughter.
“A huge thank you to all the staff, PTA, parents, carers and grandparents. Without any of them we would not have broken our record.
“For the school to have taken £5,500 is incredible and it will now go towards enhancing the fun and learning at Mendip Green Primary School.”
