Pupils at St Peter’s Cross Keys Church of England Academy in Farndon are on the hunt for Christmas spirit
Christmas came early for the children of a village primary school.
There was still no disco or Christmas fair for the children of St Peter’s Cross Keys Church of England Academy in Farndon because of covid, so the parent teacher association had to think of innovative ways to bring smiles to pupils’ faces.
They hit upon the idea of a village trail for the children to follow, picking up 15 clues as they went using that could only be seen under a UV pen light.
At the end of it, there was a prize to be claimed per class.
The early-evening event proved a hit with 160 pupils taking part and the PTA also provided presents as surprises for parents.
Vicky Briggs-Price, from the PTA, said: “Any funds raised will go back into the school.
“Fundraising has been very limited over the last 18 months.
Gemma Lale, also on the PTA, said: “It’s wonderful to be able to spread a little bit of Christmas cheer again after a period that has been so difficult for everyone.”
