En­ter­pris­ing elves and panto stars

The Oban Times - - News -

BAR­CAL­DINE Pri­mary School pupils de­cided to do some­thing dif­fer­ent for their 2016 Christ­mas cel­e­bra­tions.

The first job was to or­gan­ise a school en­ter­prise project.

The chil­dren named them­selves The BPS Elves and made wreaths and Christ­mas dec­o­ra­tions from nat­u­ral ma­te­ri­als, glit­ter and sparkling rib­bon.

The chil­dren sold their goods to their fam­i­lies, staff and the lo­cal com­mu­nity, mak­ing an im­pres­sive £100 profit.

The chil­dren de­cided the money would be split be­tween two char­i­ties. The pupils picked North­ern Inuit Res­cue So­ci­ety be­cause they re­cently wel­comed Wayne and Koda to the school to speak about their travel along the coast of Bri­tain col­lect­ing rub­bish.

The other char­ity se­lected was Wa­ter Aid.

Their sec­ond job was to write a pan­tomime which they called Snow White and the Christ­mas Dis­as­ter.

The pri­mary six and seven pupils wrote the play then, along with staff, co- or­di­nated parts and cos­tumes.

The play, per­formed in St Mo­dan’s Church, was a great suc­cess and thor­oughly en­joyed by every­one who went along.

The evening ended with a na­tiv­ity scene while pupils read Bi­ble scrip­tures, carol singing, ukulele play­ing, a recorder quar­tet and a quiz led by the Rev­erend McCormick.

The chil­dren also held a sil­ver col­lec­tion at their Christ­mas cel­e­bra­tions. Their cho­sen char­ity for this was Oban’s Hope Kitchen. Just un­der £ 50 was raised on the evening and the school topped this up to £100 with pro­ceeds from their re­cent rag bag col­lec­tion.

Happy smiles from Bar­cal­dine Pri­mary School’s en­ter­pris­ing elves.

The young­sters took to the stage with their pro­duc­tion of Snow White and the Christ­mas Dis­as­ter.
