Liverpool's most Christmassy School!
HISTORIC Arnot St Mary Church of
England Primary School in Walton, which dates back to 1884, is opening a Winter
Wonderland for the local community on Friday, 1 December 2017.
The grounds of the 400 pupil School will be lit by a 20 foot real Christmas tree
and lights, while a tepee in the garden includes a Santa's workshop with
storytelling sessions, mince pies and of course, Santa himself.
The opening is being performed by the oldest surviving pupil, Ronnie Dalglish,
who attended in the 1920s, is now 95 years old and is a former Father Christmas
for the School.
Headteacher, Fiona Roper, said:- "Our School is at the heart of the local
community and our fantastic staff always go the extra mile to make Christmas a
special time for our children and their families and we want this year to be
Christmas can be a challenging time for many families and sadly, some of our
children don't always experience the Christmas we would hope for them. This
year, we want to bring our whole community together to give all of our children
a Christmas to remember. We think it is really important that we make a
difference during the festive season and we want to do it by bringing Christmas
We'll have lots of great prizes to be won in our raffle which have been
generously donated by local businesses, including the star prize which is a 49"
LED Smart TV!
Our Winter Wonderland is a magical place for everyone; it's a place where our
whole community can come together and share in the joy of Christmas."
The display will be open every day after School until the end of term.
