christmas came early for children from a primary school who walked away with some new toys at a special swap day.

Pupils from Pheasant Bank Academy in Rossington brought along their unwanted toys and games to trade them in for a new item.

Simon McConway, vice principal at the West End Road school, said: “Pupils brought in unwanted toys and games to give to let other pupils get some enjoyment out of them.

“This was to teach our pupils the value of sharing with others.”

And the pupils have also been showing off their caring side by organising a community afternoon where Rossington residents were invited into school for a cup of tea or coffee and a guided tour around the school.

Pupils also gave out gifts to residents from the Amethyst Residential Home bought with money raised by pupils Jack Varley, who sold drinks to pupils on the school yard, and Katie Scott who raised cash in her own time.
