Christmas Post for Christies

There was an atmosphere of excitement in the Girls’ Division Great Hall as Year 10 took to the stage for the annual Christmas Post Assembly. This was the girls’ chance to encourage the rest of the School to support them in their friendly competition to raise money for charity.

The charity benefitting from the Christmas Post this year is Christies.

Each of the six Forms took it in turn to put on a festive sketch, all depicting a disaster in the run-up to Christmas which could only be overcome with the support of their fellow Bolton School pupils!

There were plenty of famous faces on the stage for the six performances, including Ant and Dec, Honey G, Kanye West and Will Smith. Christmas characters were also in evidence, with Father Christmas and his elves and reindeer appearing in most Forms’ performances, and even Buddy from Elf putting in an appearance. The girls also included lots of topical political references, with Donald Trump featuring in all of the Forms’ sketches and Barack Obama in many of them!

The girls parodied the US presidential election, had Santa choose the acts he was taking with him to The Xmas Factor, and re-enacted their own version of Home Alone. On-stage depictions of the mannequin challenge were instantly recognisable, as were the various theme tunes and song clips that each Form incorporated into their performance.

The rest of the School thoroughly enjoyed Year 10’s efforts and the Great Hall was filled with laughter throughout the Christmas Post Assembly.

The Christmas Post was traditionally held to allow pupils to post their Christmas cards to one another, to be delivered around School by Year 10, with cakes, sweets and drinks sold on the side. However, this year, pupils will be able to post their cards for free if they make a purchase at the cake and sweet stalls.

After the money has been counted, the School will find out which of the six Year 10 Forms raised the most for Christies and won the Christmas Post competition.
