Sheringham lifeboat crew teach pupils about water safety
Pupils at a north Norfolk school have been getting lessons on water safety from the experts and helping raise money for charity at the same time.
Yesterday, Sheringham Primary School played host to the town's lifeboat crew, who visited the school to give pupils some lessons about water safety.
Jacky Mills, assistant head at the school, said: 'It was a really entertaining talk. Because the school is based in a town which has a lifeboat station, quite a few of the children have members of their family or know people who are part of the crew, so we always support them.'
The school recently held a 'mufti' event, where pupils were encouraged to school in spots or stripes, to raise money for the RNLI's SOS Day.
In total, �248 was raised, with a further �62 donated from six of the pupils who held a cake and book stall and paint a pebble event, during last summer.
