Festive message from college students

By timesecholife on in All News, Leek news

College students have produced their very own Christmas video - a version of the Christmas classic, Merry Christmas Everybody by Slade. Groups of students from across Buxton & Leek College and some students who were off-site, studying for an apprenticeship, took a line of the song each – and in some cases acted and danced too, making for lots of comedy moments.

College students have produced their very own Christmas video – a version of the Christmas classic, Merry Christmas Everybody by Slade.

Groups of students from across Buxton & Leek College and some students who were off-site, studying for an apprenticeship, took a line of the song each – and in some cases acted and danced too, making for lots of comedy moments.

A spokesman at the college said: “There were also some poignant scenes, including students signing part of the song, reminiscent of the recent iconic Rose Ayling-Ellis and Giovanni Pernice dance as part of Strictly Come Dancing.

Another highlight of the video is Buxton Football Academy, taking the limelight once again following some of the student players having made the first team which played in the second round of the FA Cup, televised on BBC TV earlier this month. Fortunately, the weather conditions for the singing were better than their final FA Cup match against Morecambe.

Buxton Fire Service also kindly got into the spirit, with impromptu filming taking place during a Public Services’ student tour of the station.”

Media student, Toby Barnes, played guitar for some of the opening scenes of the video and when he’s not in class he can also be spotted performing in the Devonshire Dome.

Local landmarks that appear in the video include Alton Towers and the Buxton Crescent Spa Hotel.

The college spokesman added: “As always, the college has been giving to charity over the Christmas period. This year we have been collecting for our local foodbanks.

If our video makes you smile, please do consider giving to your local foodbank too.

The video also has an uplifting message for those feeling down over the Xmas period – Look to the future now, it’s only just begun.”
