A SCHOOL head has found a novel way to let children know their school is closed on Thursday.

Eddie Huntington, of Rosebrook Primary, Stockton, parodied Cliff Richard's Christmas hit Mistletoe and Wine to inform pupils of the snow day.

The video has been viewed 64,000 times since it was posted on Facebook on Wednesday afternoon.

Mr Huntington told The Northern Echo: "It's a fun way of telling the kids and parents of the opportunities having a snow day can create.

"It's also a great chance to raise a smile whilst delivering a serious message."
