A £1,150 DONATION to Brighstone Primary School was music to the pupils’ ears.
West Wight Rotary Club donated the money to the school, which it spent on new musical equipment — notably percussion instruments, such as maracas, triangles, bongos, tambourines and triangles.
The school’s population has more than doubled under the schools’ reorganisation — it now has 182 pupils — and it had a shortage of musical equipment.
Headteacher Amanda Johnston said: “We are absolutely delighted West Wight Rotary was able to give us the funds to purchase new instruments. This generosity is gratefully received and I know the children will benefit enormously.”
West Wight Rotarian Trevor Philcox said the club was happy to help out.
He said: “I happened to ask the school if it needed anything and the response was more musical equipment. We were more than happy to lend our support.”
