Festive cheer was in the air as schoolchildren, parents and teachers attended Christmas fairs and concerts.

The classrooms of Brookland Junior School were packed with seasonal spirit as its winter fair filled the school last Saturday.

Parents of pupils from the school in Hampstead Garden Suburb helped to run stalls and activities throughout the day to raise money for the school.

In Highgate, 47 girls from Channing Senior School took to the stage to perform The Canterbury Tales at Jacksons Lane Theatre last week.

The girls mixed modern songs, from The Beatles to Abba, into the medieval story.

At Gospel Oak School, in Mansfield Road, on Friday last week a parents’ and children’s choir performed for visitors at the opening ceremony for this year’s winter fair.

A Santa’s grotto, tombola, face painting and origami were some of the entertainment on offer.
