Water guns and soaked sponges were at the ready at the Neale-Wade Academy when students took part in a sponsored water fight.
Brave staff offered to go in the stocks while around 50 students bombarded them to raise money for charity.
The event raised money for East Anglia Children’s Hospice (EACH).
Teacher Chris MacManus said: “This worthy charity has hospices in East Anglia that provide care to children who have terminal illness.
“In addition to this, they support their families during one of the most difficult periods of their lives.”
