Christ­mas around the world

Central Otago Mirror - - CENTRAL NEWS -

Get­ting into the Christ­mas theme ahead of Cromwell Pri­mary School’s inaugural

event are pupils An­n­marie San­ders, 8, left, Sara Hen­der­son, 9 and Meg Huf­fa­dine, 8. The event, which will be held on De­cem­ber 10, start­ing at 5pm, is be­ing held in­stead of the tra­di­tional endof-year con­cert. Or­gan­iser Danella Small­ridge said pupils had been learn­ing about dif­fer­ent cel­e­bra­tions around the world as part of their in­quiry topic this term. Some of the class­rooms had cho­sen a coun­try or cul­ture and would be per­form­ing some­thing re­lated to that coun­try dur­ing the pa­rade. One class­room had de­cided to ‘‘pimp’’ their bikes, with some bikes be­ing dec­o­rated with a Christ­mas theme and oth­ers dec­o­rated with other cel­e­bra­tions. The pupils will pa­rade up Molyneux Ave and along Barry Ave, be­fore fin­ish­ing at An­der­son Park. The pupils will sing Christ­mas carols and Santa Claus will at­tend. Lo­cal en­ter­tain­ment will also be on of­fer from Paddy ’n’ the Lads. Fam­i­lies are in­vited to pack a pic­nic and en­joy the en­ter­tain­ment.
