St John's Festival Fire

Pupils throughout the School celebrated St John’s Day last Friday with fires and maypole dancing.  The dancing was accompanied by folk musicians from Newcastle University, several of whom started their education at Elmfield.

Pupils young and old celebrated with songs around their respective fires.  Class Seven lit the fire for older pupils with arrows of fire as part of an Elmfield tradition for pupils who have completed their week of outdoor skills and activities on Ru’a Fiola, an Inner Hebridean Island.
