On Friday 16th June 2017 the St Christopher's School community came together to celebrate VE Day. Children arrived at school in a variety of 1940s era costumes from returning evacuees to military personnel. Year 4 children podded fresh peas in preparation for a special lunch WW2 luncheon prepared by Mrs Baker and Mrs Wallace. Despite the ongoing rationing, the catering team
pulled out all the stops and children enjoyed Victory Meatloaf with new potatoes and fresh peas followed by bread and butter pudding and evaporated milk.
At 2pm the real festivities started. Throughout the weeks leading up to VE Day pupils had been practicing celebratory performances to present to their peers and parents. On the day pupils delivered excellent renditions of the following songs and readings.
Early Years: 'God Save the Queen' - National Anthem
Year 1 & 2: Run Rabbit Run - Flanagan & Allen
Year 3: Lambeth Walk (from the musical Me & My Girl - Noel Gay)
Year 4: Letters from the Frontline - Poems and Readings
Year 5 & 6: Think about what you know
Running alongside the show was a street party style feast and bomb shelter tours of the on-site reinforced concrete shelter from WW2 when St Christopher's School housed Canadian Forces. Pupils, parents and staff really captured the atmosphere of the day and I must take this opportunity to thank parents and pupils for providing such wonderful provisions for the feast and the PT&FA for supplying refreshments on the day.
