Santas Magical Movies

Our 6th Class recently transformed our school hall into a cinema theatre as part of the Junior Entrepreneur Programme. 

They called their business “Santas Magical Movies”. As part of the concept, each class in their pods watched a Christmas movie and was treated to some freshly made popcorn from the onsite popcorn machine.

Each pupil in the school loved the cinema experience organised by 6th class. They deserve huge credit for creating a well-run business in a safe and enjoyable environment for all. Well done to each and every one of them.
