Children brought cakes to school to sell on Friendship Thursday.

The aim was to raise funds for a “friendship stop” between two playground areas at The Erme Primary School, Ivybridge.

A school spokesman said: “The school council worked extremely hard to sell the tasty cakes but a special thank you needs to be said to the face painters Robyn Gryce, Annabel Richards, Immy Richards and Issy Hawling for doing all the super face painting over a busy lunch time, as well as a big thank you to parents who supported their children with this event.

“The true spirit of friendship continued with one pupil bringing extra cakes for the staff at the end of a busy day.”
