It was five years ago on Friday that a Norfolk special school moved into its new premises.
And with the school going from strength to strength, it is now aiming to raise cash for a new minibus to take the students away on school trips.
Woodfields School in Sheringham needs to find £15,000 to buy a brand-new minibus that will give children the opportunity to go on residential trips.
It is especially important for the Woodfields pupils as they do not have the same opportunities as other children to go to friends for sleepovers, said headteacher Diane Whitham.
She said that the students were hoping to do their Duke of Edinburgh Award and it was vital for the children to put what they have learnt in school into an everyday situation.
The campaign is being launched as the school celebrates its fifth year in the state-of-the-art premises in Sheringham.
