Junior School pupils sang Christmas carols with gusto, parents and staff joined in and Senior School pupils peered through the windows at the festive scene in the playground. Christmas arrived at PGS with the well-loved Junior School Carols in the Quad followed by the JSA Fayre in the Bawtree Building.

Undoubtedly the highlight was the arrival of Father Christmas himself – encouraged by Mr Priory the Junior School pupils called out “Father Christmas” several times, louder, louder and louder until finally he emerged full of smiles, waving merrily.

The Christmas ingredients of mince pies and mulled wine served by Junior School teachers, reindeers and even snow made sure that everyone left feeling warm and fully festive.
