Pupils go crackers for Christmas fair
CHRISTMAS kicked off at The Axholme Academy when our RE teacher Mr Wayte volunteered to have his beard shaved off to leave a comical moustache.
Throughout November he had let his beard grow, and it had become quite a bushy sight! Crowds gathered to see Mr Wayte, as he sat on stage, waiting to lose his beard. And who would shave it? Mrs Wright! She shaved Mr Wayte's facial hair to perfection, and the aftermath was hilarious! We asked Mr Wayte's wife what she honestly thinks of her husband's new look.
She said: "It is horrible! But it's for a good cause – it's just hair."
Later on that night, the academy was getting ready for the Christmas festivities, for it was the Christmas fair! Dozens turned out to the spectacular evening, along with amazing stalls, with the lucky dip, cake sales, and raffles. But this magical evening wouldn't have been possible without the form tutors and their volunteers on their stalls.

Mr Croot's form set up a challenging Play Your Cards Right stall, the prize being Thornton's chocolates.
Jessica Gorrie (Year 7) and her mum won on that stall. Jessica gave her opinion on the night, saying: "It was good fun and enjoyable."
Mrs Childs and her form set up a memorable cracker challenge. People had put their names down to compete, seeing how many crackers they could fully eat. Some famous faces put their names down, including Mr Thorpe and Mr Creasy! The winner of the event was Carl Downs (Year 11), who won the prize of £5.
One lucky winner of the fair, Thomas Arrand (Year 8) came to Miss Larkman's stall and won the guess how many sweets are in the jar game. He guessed 135, when the precise number was 136!
He came home that evening with a huge jar of sweets, enough to last him a very long time. We interviewed him about what it was like, and he said: "I really enjoyed it – the cracker challenge was so hilarious watching people stuff cream crackers into their faces just for a measly £5.00, but it was cool!"
The whole event raised £856.
