A cast of thousands – literally – have taken part in a festive video for schools across Ebor Academy Trust.
All the trust’s 22 schools, from York, Selby, the Yorkshire coast and the East Riding and the Humber, joined in with their own “Christmas Shoutouts” – wishing viewers a merry Christmas in a loud voice.
Special guests, including policemen, carol singers, trustees and the central team, also appear on the video – plus there’s a regal message from the “Queen of Ebor” and an interview with Father Christmas himself.
“We now have over 5,000 children in Ebor,” said Richard Ludlow, chief executive. “We consider ourselves one big family and so it’s only right we join together at this special time of the year in a special way.”
Links to the video, on YouTube, are being emailed to parents, friends, colleagues and suppliers. “It’s a celebration of the hard work every single one of us in the trust have put in, a fitting end to another successful year – and a reminder that everything we do, we do for our children,” added Mr Ludlow.
