Have your say

William Stukeley Primary School staff at Holbeach performed Snow White as a surprise for the children.

Staff rehearsed behind closed doors for six weeks after school, at weekends and at any given opportunity to present Snow White and the Seven Dwarfs to the whole school on the last day of term.

The cast managed to keep the whole performance a secret from the pupils so it came as a big surprise to them. They didn’t need any prompting to cheer and boo in the right places! The children were amazed at the characters’ costumes and really enjoyed the whole experience. The cast were advised and directed by parent helper Vicky Robinson.

Chair of governors Richard Nicholas said: “I have always been hugely proud of our outstanding team at William Stukeley Primary School; their commitment to outstanding education knows no bounds. Their ability to enrich the children’s learning in so many ways is astounding. So I was expecting good things when I took my seat for the panto, and was truly enthralled to see the children’s reaction. The excitement was electrifying! Well done to all the staff and volunteers for putting on such a spectacle. I can’t wait for next year’s show.”
