Thetford primary school students are going to the zoo after raising £3,000
Animal-mad primary school pupils have ensured they will have a day out to remember after raising £3,000 for a trip to the zoo.
Children and parents at Raleigh Infant School, in Thetford, have been going wild to make sure that everyone in the school can go to Banham Zoo.
The trip was chosen by students at the start of the year as a reward for good behaviour.
Fund-raising has seen classes holding cake stalls and on May 2 pupils dressed up as animals.
Daphne Rothwell, headteacher, said the school was “proud” of the children reaching their target.

“The whole idea behind the fund-raising was that it made it free for all of the children to go to the zoo.
“We’re very proud of them and it’s going to be a great day out,” she said.
