Every child from the reception class to year 6 participated in the show which stayed true to the original Barrie story.

Registrar Karen Barclay said; “It was a wonderful celebration of all things magical and included songs and dances from Charleston to good old fashioned music hall numbers. “As usual there were a few modern twists along the way.”

Director of music Marie Cunningham said, “The children have worked exceptionally hard, not only in preparing for our production, but also in raising for Great Ormond Street Hospital, with treasure hunts and bad hair days.

“The show was a huge success for pupils at Magdalene House and delighted audiences at the three performances”.

Headmaster, Chris Moxon, said, “Once again the pupils of Magdalene House have produced a fantastic show featuring every pupil in the school from the smallest child in reception to the oldest one in prep 6.

“Our director of music Marie Cunningham rightly takes the credit but it really has been a team effort from all our pupils and their teachers.”
