Our classes in P.1 to P.3 are very busy rehearsing for the traditional Christmas Nativity performance. This group will perform the nativity story and musical, ‘A King Is Born’.

In addition, there will be a ‘dress rehearsal’ performance on Thursday 14th December 2017 at 10.00 a.m. Our P.4 to P.7 classes will provide the audience for the ‘dress rehearsal’ performance.

All parents, family members, friends, neighbours and members of the community are invited to join us at these performances.
