Teachers and staff at a Saltney high school created a spook-tacular production to entertain students on Halloween.

Staff honed their dance moves and donned creepy costumes for the production filmed around the school.

Craig Burns, the new headteacher at St David’s High School, said: “The teachers of St David’s, in partnership with our proactive PTA, were proud to put a Thriller parody together for our students to contribute to the number of fundraising events that have been taking place at the school.

“Since September, we have been developing ICT facilities at St. David’s, particularly students’ digital literacy skills; we are making good progress with new Chrome books and computers purchased, which will make a difference to students’ everyday learning.

“We are grateful to MBNA who have also supported us during this venture.”
