Pupils and staff at Calderwood Lodge had a fantastic time today celebrating Purim in school. As usual there were many wonderful and creative costumes, and this year as Purim coincided with World Book Day we took the theme of ‘characters from stories and books’ to help us choose our costumes. The whole school celebrated in the hall with an assembly that included a fashion parade, a play presented by Primary 5, a comedy sketch from Mrs Yedd, Mrs Borowski and Shosh and a visit from our very own Smurf Rabbi Rubin. Activities carried on throughout the day linked to World Book Day. Look out for pictures to follow in The Jewish Telegraph and check back here later for a gallery of photographs from the day.
