"I remember my days at school vividly and with great affection. Bolton School has a great tradition in the liberal arts. I've always acted for the love of it and this first love was inspired at Hopefield, the school theatre."

Santa Claus is Coming to School!

Thursday, 18 December 2014

There was a sense of excitement in Beech House as the term drew to a close and the Infants’ School welcomed a very special visitor: none other than Father Christmas himself!

With a little help from his elves and the Parents’ Association, the Music Room was transformed into a magical grotto for the occasion, and every pupil from Reception, Year 1 and Year 2 was invited to step inside and speak to Santa. He had already made his list, but used this opportunity to check it twice to make sure that he had everyone’s Christmas wishes correct before the big night.

The children really loved the magical experience of talking to Father Christmas, who displayed remarkable knowledge about what each child wanted to receive! He did, however, have to ask his Elf to make just a few corrections to the list.

He also made sure each of the children received an early gift as well, as a special treat prior to Christmas Day.
