Children from a Wimborne first school helped to embrace the spirit of Christmas by raising money for charity at their annual nativity.

Hayeswood First School staged its take on the nativity – There’s Something Amazing Going On – across three days.

The whole school participated, with Year 4 children taking on the speaking parts and the other classes performing song and dance routines.

And after each show a collection was made for Julia’s House and Save the Children, raising £267 altogether for the two charities.

Headteacher, Pippa Gerrett, said: “The children put on a brilliant show, it really was something amazing.

“I’d like to thank all the staff who worked so hard on putting the show together and members of the Hayeswood School Association for serving tea before each performance.

“The nativity is definitely one of our highlights in the school calendar and I’m delighted that we were also able to entertain our audience and raise money for children’s charities.”
