Official Library Opening
On Tuesday 19th November, Chris Jarvis spoke with the children at Holy Cross about his work on CBeebies and in pantomimes. This year he is directing and starring in Sleeping Beauty at the Wyvern Theatre.
He spoke with the children about his CBeebies shows and how every programme needs a variety of people to make it happen. The children joined in enthusiastically with Chris' retelling of Roald Dahl's Revolting Rhyme, the Three Little Pigs.
Chris also had the honour of officially opening the school's new library. Head of School, Mrs Salter said: "We wanted to create a space where children can become excited about reading and sharing stories. We hope this can be a space for parents and their children to come and share books and stories as well."
