SPLAT the teacher and cheerleading displays were all part of the fun at a school fete.

The event organised by Friends of St Gilbert’s Primary School, in Stamford, attracted 150 people.

Children, parents and friends enjoyed browsing around the various stalls and games set up at the school.

One of the main attractions for youngsters was the chance to splat the teacher with a sponge.

Headteacher Claire Thorley was one of the people who bravely went into the stocks.

The school’s cheerleading team, which includes pupils from Years 3, 4, 5 and 6, also gave a performance on the day.

Other attractions included a penalty shootout, face painting and tattoos, tombola and a raffle.

Friends association chairman Bernadette Robb said the event raised £1,980, which will buy new reading books.

She said: “The fete was really well supported.”
