“Our children were absorbed in the action”

Teacher Jamie Kelly of Chantry Primary Academy in Luton, who won the School Trip Champion Award at the School Travel Awards used his prize money to take his group to see Matilda and was blown away by his pupil’s reaction to the show.

He told us: “They were completely absorbed with the wonderful actors, the catchy songs, the amazing scenery, props and the overall magic of the experience. Being within arm’s reach of Miss Trunchball was nothing short of amazing.

“We travelled into London by train, which in itself, was an experience for the majority of the pupils, as only a handful had been on a train before and even less had visited London.They had the most memorable time, and for so many of them, it was a truly once in a lifetime experience.” You can read Jamie’s full report here.
