Pupils at Ysgol Maes Y Felin in Holywell have enjoyed a variety of festive fun activities in the lead up to the end of term, including a fundraiser for charity.

Miss Wilde, nurture teacher, organised an Elf Day for the children, inviting them to come to school dressed as these cute characters.

Cake and sweet stalls were set up for staff and children to purchase an array of tempting treats, all in aid of Alzheimer’s Society.

On the day, pupils from year 5/6 helped by dealing with money and serving children.  Miss Wilde said: “The children all looked fantastic dressed as elves, especially when they all came together for the morning assembly.  

The stalls were a great success and we completely sold out!  We raised £212 which is amazing, and I would like to thank everyone for their generous support for this vital charity.”

A few days later, pupils took part in the school’s annual Christmas Jumper Day and enjoyed a delicious Christmas dinner at lunchtime.

Mrs Stevenson, year 3/4 teacher, also organised a school Christmas choir to give a special performance at a coffee morning held at St. Peter’s Church, Holywell.  

The children sang three Christmas carols and then had an opportunity to chat with guests and enjoy refreshments and cake.

As a final festive flourish, class parties for all pupils are being held today (Wednesday, 21st).
