Singing sheep, knowledgeable narrators and twinkling stars joined Mary and Joseph on stage at Gad’s Kindergarten Nativity today.
The festive four to seven year-olds told the Christmas crib story and performed traditional favourites and modern melodies, accompanied by the school’s Director of Music on piano.
All children from Reception and Years one and two played a part in the upbeat production, to a packed audience of proud parents and friends of the school.
Five year-old Aamiyah Francillia, from Gillingham, was one of several students to sing a solo and was very excited to do so: “I was proud to play a King and end the show with a really fun Christmassy song – everybody joined in with the actions”
Head of Gad’s Kindergarten, Mrs Victoria Grant, said: “As always, we have been treated to a heart-warming Nativity, made extra special by how young the students are.
“They have been learning lines and practising moves at home and school and I would like to thank the parents and teachers for their enthusiasm, commitment and support.
After, the children received rapturous applause and a standing ovation from the crowd, before joining them for mince pies in the school’s dining hall.
Headmaster Mr Paul Savage, said: “To see our students put on such an accomplished performance is testament to their commitment to learning, and to our teachers’ dedication”, before presenting commendation certificates to several students to acknowledge their hard work during the academic term.
