Pupils enjoy Christmas spectacular

There were some animal additions to this year’s festive fun at Ellington First School.

The big celebrations included a Santa’s Grotto and Sinisa Lukic (a parent of one of the pupils who runs Alum Creations based in Ashington) once again put together a bright two-metre tall Christmas tree with decorations.

Extra features for 2014 included two donkeys, a Shetland pony wearing antlers and a sleigh. The attractions were organised by the PTA for its Christmas Fair evening, which raised £1,100 for the school. Headteacher Kevin Vardy praised the association for giving pupils ‘a magical festive experience’. Pictured with one of the donkeys is Zoe Underwood.
