CHILDREN from a rural school swopped the countryside for the bright lights of the city.
Year 6 pupils from Thorneyholme Primary School, Dunsop Bridge, had a fantastic end of school treat when they travelled to London for a day’s visit.
The youngsters travelled by train to Euston, then took the Tube to Waterloo Station to travel the London Eye. The weather was stunning and they were able to identify all the major sights including the Houses of Parliament, Buckingham Palace, The Wembley Arch and “The Shard”, still under construction!
“The pupils walked along the embankment to The Duchy of Lancaster Offices where they were treated to lunch before going on to see a spectacular performance of “The Lion King”. It was a day to remember, made all the more special by having raised almost all the funds needed to cover the costs by themselves!
The youngsters got together as a team and organised a sponsored walk, which raised a magnificent £720 towards the day. A spokesman for the school said: “The lucky children will have some brilliant memories of their final year at Thorneyholme, which started with a visit to France in September last year and has culminated in a day to remember in our own capital city.”
