Fun on St. Nikolaus Day at Northampton High!

Pupils honour German tradition by leading special session on St. Nikolaus Day

Children in German speaking countries get very excited on 6 December as they celebrate St. Nikolaus Day.

In honour of this wonderful tradition, a group of enthusiastic Senior School students made their way to Junior School to teach Year 5 and 6 about this much-loved festival. Maya G, Aiyven M and Tobi O prepared an assembly speaking about St. Nikolaus Day and Christmas traditions in German speaking countries. Junior School students then had to put their knowledge to the test in a quiz.

The following day, our wonderful Year 6 students got creative as Lexi C, Jasmine W, Inaaya A, Atmaja T, Ruby S, Millie C and Shreya P demonstrated how to make origami St. Nikolaus. By the end of the session, everyone got to have their own St. Nikolaus.

Happy St. Nikolaus Day!
