THIS bright yellow sailing boat is now taking pride of place in the corner of a school playground for youngsters to enjoy.

Boys and girls at St Swithun’s Catholic Primary in Southsea are playing pirates and sailors and performing role plays in their new toy, donated by a Langstone Sailing Club following an appeal in The News.

The ship is sitting on a bed of shingles that children throughout the school have decorated in bright colours, as a lasting mementos to their time at the school.

Joint headteacher Liz Bradbury said: ‘The children love their new boat and they are making very good use of it.

‘The sailing club was going to get rid of it so we’re delighted they gave it to us instead.’
