Pupils enjoy dressing up and raising charity cash
FROM dashing donkeys and festive fairies, school halls up and down Macclesfield have been crammed with young actors and actresses performing in Christmas nativities.
Children at Christ the King Primary School enjoyed getting dressed up for end of year fun, with the traditional Christmas nativity as well as a ‘Christmas jumper day’, where students wore novelty outfits in return for a donation. They raised a fantastic £188 for Macclesfield Neonatal Unit.
Youngsters at Bosley St Mary’s Primary School all got into character for their Christmas play ‘Behind the Stable Door’ and donned Christmas jumpers for the day.
They also celebrated advent with a special Christingle Service.
Pupils at Lostock Hall Primary School had some fun with their end of year show by putting on a festive production of ‘Straw and Order’. Write to: Letters, Macclesfield Express, Mitchell Henry
