Holy Cross headteacher Kathy Dart and pupils pose for a picture with their newly decorated Christmas tree.

Former pupil presents Christmas tree to primary school

One lucky local primary school was given a seven foot Christmas tree last week.

Former Holy Cross Church of England Primary School pupil, Michael Grant, owner of Cysleys Farm Christmas Trees, presented the Blue Spruce Christmas Tree to headteacher, Mrs Cathy Dart on Friday.

And once set up in the school hall, the children took no time in decking out the tree with festive trimmings, including labels carrying hand written message for friends and loved ones, lights and a sparkling star.

Mrs Dart said: “We are very grateful to Michael and Cysleys for donating the Christmas tree to the school.

“It’s wonderful that yet another ex-pupil thinks so highly of Holy Cross, they want to give something back to the school.

“The tree looks fabulous in our hall and the children had a great time decorating it with their baubles, labels and lights. To top it off we have a flashing star that’ll sparkle atop our tree every day until the end of term.

“The tree is going to really light up our school Christmas lunch on the last day of term.”

Pictures of the tree being decorated can be seen below.
