CHILDREN at a Shoreham school have used their topic work to help a good cause.

Year-six pupils at Swiss Gardens Primary School have been learning how the eye works and how people see things. It was decided that photography was an interesting way to approach the science topic.

The result of the children’s work, on the theme of Light and Dark, went on show in a photography exhibition at the school, in Swiss Gardens, on Thursday afternoon.

Jennifer Bourne said: “Each child chose their best photo to go into the exhibition and the results have been fantastic.

“The children have decided that all money raised will go to Medecins Sans Frontieres for their work tackling the ebola crisis.

“It went really well and the children raised over £300.”

The children also wrote to Shoreham Gallery, in Brunswick Road, to see if their work could be displayed there.

It was agreed the photographs could go on display for two weeks, from January 26.

Photographs are available for sale to add to the money raised for Medecin sans Frontieres, an international network of volunteers.
