Christmas in school

Christmas in school

THE pupils of Bourne County Primary School got the festive season off to a colourful flying start then they staged 'Christmas Allsorts' recently.  About 160 of the school's 420 children were involved in three musical plays and the choir's carol singing.

Here some of the top infants aged between six and seven years, appear in a scene from their production of 'The Visit of the Snow Queen'.

In the foreground we have Mr Icicle, Laura Bailey hanging on to the Snow Queen's sleigh, with Simone playing the star role and holding tightly to the reins of her mighty reindeer, Richard.

Behind them Mischief Maker, Richard, tries to hold Santa Claus, Marcus, back from performing the vital task of delivering the presents.

The first year class staged the family favourite 'Cinderella' while the second years chose the highly original 'Stalemate', putting the theme of love and sharing at Christmas across through the squabbles of a set of chess pieces.

Over 240 parents and friends crammed into the school hall to watch the seasonal extravaganza performed.  "It was a marvellous occasion. We got as many people in as possible and it turned out very well.  It really sets the scene for Christmas," said headmaster, Mr Wright.

Children brickies

Young Brickies for a Day

BOURNE County Primary School children became "brickies" on Friday.  A class of 9 to 10 year olds carrying out a project on building at the school gained first-hand experience of the building trade when they were taken on a tour of a development site by Allison Homes.

After visiting a brick factory in Stamford, the lucky youngsters were shown around the Spalding-based builder's Cheriton Park development at North Road, Bourne.

Allisons kitted-out the pupils in hard hats before their tour and took care to mention safety aspects, especially concerning children on building sites.  But the best part of the visit came when the children were allowed to try their hand at bricklaying and inspect the "diggers".  And to complete the successful tour, sales manager for Allison's Mr Jones presented certificates to the chiildren who had produced the best building design and plans.

Special programmes were printed at the school and colored by children, with the whole production being put together in just four weeks.

  • Last week was doubly important for the school, because a parent teacher accociation was formed.  After a meeting on Monday, Mr Richardson became the first Chairman of Abbey Road P.T.F.A.  The newly formed association went into action on both nights of the musical, selling cakes and raised the £100 for its kitty.  Mr Wright said the association would raise funds for the school and organise eductional evenings.
  • On Monday the school will be closed for "Baker Day" - when all teachers will discuss the English curriculum and evaluate computer software at the school.  Mr Wright added it was important parents understand what happens during Baker Days.  "They all think we sit around making bread!" he joked.  Five of these days take place during the school year.  This is the final one in the school year.
