PRIMARY school pupils have created a new Christmas advert “to rival John Lewis”.
The pupils at Holy Redeemer School, in Pershore, Worcester, have created an uplifting and heart-warming Christmas film showcasing their school.
The short film is called A Christmas Miracle and shows how pupils from the School Council swing into action when they see that a reception Christmas trip has been cancelled.
With the help of the older classes, the school council creates a magical replacement trip in Holy Redeemer’s Forest School area.
The film has been posted on the school’s YouTube channel …
Christina Hall, headteacher of the school, joked that the advert is “taking on John Lewis again”, with the department store being known for its grand annual festive adverts.
She said: “We are very proud of what the children and staff have achieved.
“The film embodies the true meaning of Christmas. It promotes our school values and showcases the pupils’ creativity.
“The film also shows that you don’t have to spend a lot to make Christmas special. It’s amazing what you can do with imagination, fairy lights and scrap cardboard.
“You’ll have to watch to the very end of the film to see why the film is called A Christmas Miracle.
The pupils spent a day working with filmmakers Julia Letts and James Atkinson (JDA Media) and learned a great deal about the process of filmmaking.
Filming took place in Holy Redeemer’s classrooms and Forest School area.

Mrs Hall added: “The pupils all really loved being involved and rose to the occasion. Even our very youngest children behaved impeccably on a very cold morning. Julia and James were very impressed.”
This is the second year that the pupils at Holy Redeemer School have created a Christmas advert, with last year’s called The Magic of Christmas.
Holy Redeemer School is a Catholic primary school, which has a strong focus on creativity throughout its curriculum.
