CHILDREN at Bridestowe Primary School really looked the part when they staged Ali Baba and the Bongo Bandits last week.

Children from Years 3, 4, 5 and 6 took part in the comedy based on the story of Ali Baba and the Forty Thieves.

‘The children really loved doing it,’ said teacher Lisa Tippett. ‘People have commented on their confidence and how well they learnt their lines. The parents provided the costumes and they worked incredibly hard to make sure their children looked their best. We were really impressed.’
