PUPILS at Cambo First School had a spooktacular day as a group of teenagers became the teachers.

Eight A Level Business students from King Edward VI School organised and ran a range of activities on Halloween at the first school as part of their coursework.

They did some fundraising to buy the necessary equipment and a lot of research about what events to put on for the youngsters — these included making Halloween masks, a treasure hunt in the garden, games of ‘musical zombies’ and creating their own trick or treat bags.

An impressed Cambo First School Headteacher Paula Cummings said: “The KEVI students were excellent role models for our children, who really enjoyed the activities. They were very well organised, so we could sit back and appreciate their efforts.”

Sophie Wood, Lizzie Russell, Nathan Thompson, Jay Duffield, Megan Dhillon, Tom Hume, Becky Wilde and Hannah Nowland also received praise from Rebecca Taylor, Head of Business at KEVI.

“It was great to see how well they worked together as a team and they organised both the activities and their time very effectively,” she said.
