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