Many parents, grandparents and friends met in Woodlands Hall on Tuesday to be told the story of ‘A Long Long Time Ago’.
The presentation started with the Lions Christmas Choir led by Miss Tricia. We were treated to a rendition of “Father Christmas with his big red… coat and his shiny black… boots”, “Twinkle Twinkle Little Star” and other traditional songs with a Christmassy twist and lots of actions.
These small people then sat on the benches very quietly to watch the retelling of the traditional Christmas story led by Miss Jane and the Tigers class. Each character or group was introduced by their song and they each had a few lines to say and some sang to entertain us all. The nativity tableau was formed and then all the children joined in to sing “We Wish You a Merry Christmas”.
Many tears were brought to the eye and it certainly showed that the children have an understanding of the true meaning of Christmas.
