WALLACE High School Upper Sixth pupils provided an end of term treat for the entire school community by serving up two tasty helpings of their show, “Christmas Pie”.
“Christmas Pie” is a long standing Wallace tradition, with the end of term charity show being enjoyed in the Clonevin Park School for over thirty five years.
One of the scriptwriters, Jack McComisky explained, “This year we took the very topical issue of the Mayan predictions and wrote an hour long show based on the theme. We filmed vox pop interviews on the streets of Lisburn and even recorded footage up the Mournes. Pie is a real highlight of the school year here in Wallace and we have thoroughly enjoyed scripting and rehearsing this year’s show.”
Directors Julie Dumigan and Gillian McGarry said: “It was a pleasure to work with such talented young people. Christmas Pie raised an incredible £1,700 for The Northern Ireland Children’s Hospice and thanks must go to the generosity displayed by the entire school community in raising such a fantastic sum, as well as the Upper Sixth pupils for their hours of extra curricular commitment.
“The show clearly demonstrated the sense of community spirit which is so much a part of life here in The Wallace High School. We were thrilled that former pupil, Chris Henry, took time from his busy schedule playing rugby for Ulster and Ireland to film a segment for the show.”
