CHILDREN at a village school have had a packed few days.

St Mary’s Catholic Primary School Aston Le Walls held a knights and ladies day on Thursday last week.

The day marked the end of the younger schoolchildren’s study of castles and followed on from work including a visit to Kenilworth Castle.

The children dressed up as knights and ladies and enjoyed jousting, dancing, storytelling, games plus a celebratory banquet.

There was even a visit from ‘Sir Percival’ who performed a knighting ceremony.

Then on Monday leaders from a South African school St Mary’s is linked to paid a visit.

The Village of Hope in Grabouw, 60km east of Cape Town, provides a safe and loving home to children infected or affected by HIV Aids and TB.

Then finally on Tuesday, the school held a special cultural day for the children to learn about Indian food, culture, dance and dress.
