Pupils perform "Merry Christmas, Mr Scrooge!" Pupils perform "Merry Christmas, Mr Scrooge!"

Children at ASPIRE showed no signs of being Scrooges when they took part in the centre’s annual Christmas concert last week.

The event, held at Trimithousa Village Hall on 19th December, opened with a quick talk from Mrs Hadjiyiakoumi before the drama club presented a performance of “Merry Christmas, Mr Scrooge!”

Based on the classic tale “A Christmas Carol” by Charles Dickens, the play follows a selfish man who learns the true meaning of Christmas after being visited by three ghosts.

The performance featured pupils from Reception all the way through to Year 9 and included a number of festive songs.

After a song about sausages brought the show to an end students, Jack and Michael announced the winner of their Enterprise club competition to guess how many sweets are in a jar.

It was then the PTA’s turn to get on stage and reveal who had won prizes in the Christmas raffle. A chocolate hamper, cases of wine and even an iPad Mini were among the prizes given out.

We would like to say a huge thank you to everyone who supported us on the evening and well done to the drama club for all of their hard work.
