Christmas Holiday Club Updates

Elmhurst School for Boys

15th January 2016

The Elmhurst Holiday Club was a short but fun packed few days at the end of term. We packed a lot into a short space of time but the highlight for all was our visit to see Santa!

We were in high spirits as the coach left Elmhurst, The children were all singing Christmas Carols and funny Christmas songs whilst they waved at the Christmas shoppers.

Santa had bought his Reindeer with him and the children delighted in watching them eat and of course poop which caused great hilarity! They even had their Christmas Bells on ready to pull Father Christmas on his sleigh.

There was an air of great anticipation and a hush fell over the children as Father Christmas readied himself for the Elmhurst Boys. He had come especially from his home in the North Pole for our boys so we felt very privileged.

Then the children started singing , very softly ( so as not to frighten the Reindeer ) and it was magical. People stopped and gathered round as our boys sung like an angelic choir and people joined in, young children were held by parents as we shared a magical Christmas moment. I swear there wasn’t a dry eye!

Our boys asked for play stations, lego, tranformers  EVEN a puppy which Father Christmas was quick to point out was out of the question due to ‘Elf and Safety’ he could not carry live animals on his sleigh!

Sometimes it is the simplest of outings that are the best fun!
