A “flash mob” dance was among the highlights of St George’s Primary School fete on Saturday.
The performance was a carefully-guarded secret until the performance into life in front of startled spectators.
Its mobile cast included staff, students and PTA members with head teacher Howard Fisher also joining the fray to throw a few well-coordinated shapes.
Other entertainment included a rodeo bull, a model train, inflatables, a giant slide and, most popular of all, stocks for a “soak the teacher” contest.
A karaoke machine was also a hit with youngsters who took turns to belt out Let It Go, the theme tune of the animated film Frozen.
The school mascot, George the Dragon, was another major draw for children.
It’s estimated the fete will have raised about £4,000 for school funds.
PTA member Faye Webb said it was the first time the fete had been held at the weekend, and, judging by its success, it appears it could remain a Saturday fixture.
She said: “The day went really well and the flash mob performance was the icing on the cake.
“We brought a lot of gazebos because of the predicted rain but ended up using them to shield us from the sun.
“We’ve had so many positive comments and I’d like to thank staff and all sponsors for helping us make it so successful.”
