Children’s TV Star Chris Jarvis Hosts Guest Assembly at Drove Primary School

Children’s TV Star Chris Jarvis Hosts Guest Assembly at Drove Primary School

Last Tuesday, pupils at Drove Primary School were treated to a very special assembly. CBeebies presenter and veteran actor Chris Jarvis gave an entertaining and educational show to an awe-inspired audience.

Speaking to pupils in years 3 to 5, Chris shared his experiences in television and talked to the children about all the different work that goes into making a TV show. To find out more about the compelling and eye-opening assembly, read the school’s blog.

Chris Jarvis has worked as an actor and presenter with the BBC since the early 1990s, as one of the original presenters for CBeebies and in many popular shows such as The Demon Headmaster, ChuckleVision, and Step Inside.

Chris also has the incredible record of appearing professionally in pantomimes every year since 1995! This year is no different as Chris will be headlining Sleeping Beauty at the Wyvern Theatre in Swindon. It was a real honour for such a prestigious figure to share his knowledge and experience with children at Drove.

This event is a great example of the kind of engaging and inspiring events we are proud to offer at all of our schools. Everyone at The White Horse Federation would like to give a huge thanks to Chris for putting on such a great show at Drove Primary School.

If you’d like to see Chris in action, the pantomime Sleeping Beauty will be running from Saturday 7th December to Sunday 5th January at the Wyvern Theatre in Swindon.
