All years join in the fun for a trio of Christ­mas shows

Buckinghamshire Advertiser - - NEWS -

LEY Hill School pupils de­lighted their au­di­ences with a trio of tri­umphs last week – and raised a tidy sum for a lo­cal project at the same time.

Re­cep­tion and year one pupils charmed with a tra­di­tional na­tiv­ity, which was fol­lowed with an allsing­ing, all-danc­ing pro­duc­tion from years two and three en­ti­tled A Danc­ing Christ­mas Party, which saw some mis­chievous polar bears cause some sea­sonal sleigh-pack­ing havoc be­fore Jingles, Dusty and El­fiss (com­plete with Pres­ley quiff ) got Santa back on track.

In the evening, year four, five and six pupils staged Ali Baba and the Bongo Ban­dits, where the chil­dren sang, danced, rapped and showed deft comic tim­ing, even in the face of the teach­ers’ storm­ing of the stage in a ri­otous David Bowie trib­ute dance.

The fi­nale the per­for­mances saw fam­i­lies giv­ing gen­er­ously for the lo­cal cam­paign to re­place the play equip­ment at the

of nearby play­ground Bot­ley Play­ing Fields.

Head teacher Nigel Hoff said he was de­lighted the school was able to present a cheque for £770 to the Bot­ley Play­ing Fields As­so­ci­a­tion.

He added: “The chil­dren

at were very en­thu­si­as­tic about this worth­while lo­cal char­ity. They have such an amaz­ing time do­ing the plays, but be­ing able to raise money for their lo­cal park really puts the ic­ing on the Christ­mas cake!”
