Youngsters got to grips with complicated old fashioned language to put on a performance of the traditional Pace Egg Play.

Year one and two pupils from St Andrew’s Infant School, Brighouse, acted out the annual play which tells the story of the fall and rise of good St George in front of classmates, parents and teachers.

For the last six weeks, children have been studying hard to learn their lines with the help of their parents.

Teacher Deborah Ifould said: “All the children had to get to grips with some complicated language as it is a traditional scripted play.

However they impressed everyone and put on a really good performance.”

The play adapts Easter elements of death and resurrection as St George battles against Bold Slasher and the Black Prince, while the Doctor uses his magical cures on the fallen hero.
