Background: New school buildings in Switzerland's Pestalozzi village... The village - named after the famous Swiss educationist and philanthropist of the early nineteen century - is the first of the Pestalozzi settlements set up in various countries to look after orphans.
One of the little girls was lifted up to perform an unveiling... The plaque is in honour of a well-known benefactress associated with the school, Doctor Elizabeth Rotten...She was there to attend the recent inauguration of the new buildings.
Some choruses sung by the children, and then the big surprise of the day...chefs wheeled in a king-sized cake. The children looked on in fascination as it was cut...they know there would be plenty for everyone.
The next surprise - a donkey and trap with some lanterns to celebrate Advent. The lanterns have small windows, which are opened one after the other as Christmas day approaches.
A picturesque ending to the ceremony, as the children leave the classroom carrying their lanterns.
