Parents, grandparents, family and friends at St. Brigid’s Primary School, Ballymoney were treated to two wonderful performances of the school’s Christmas Show.
Each of the shows was a sell out and the audience shared the Christmas joy with the children.
First up was Class A (KS1 Learning Support Centre) with Countdown to Christmas which was wonderfully received by the very appreciative audience. This was followed by the Foundation Stage’s (P1& P2) traditional nativity show, which this year was entitled Born in a Barn. The nativity performance is always special for the parents and an important milestone in the children’s life in St. Brigid’s.
It is also quite a challenge to get a role for all of the 37 Primary 1 children but the staff achieved it and everyone of the boys and girls will have a special memory for life.
Class B (KS2 Learning Support Centre) took over next and they had the audience laughing all the way to the interval with their Back to the Future. There were plenty of gags and jokes at the expense of their poor teacher, Mrs McNally!
The second act of the Christmas Show opened with Key Stage Ones (P3 & P4) Prickly Hay, which combined the Christmas tale with a country and western theme. As is traditional, the show finished with Key Stage Two’s (P5-7) Across the Lands. The older pupils delivered well known hits, old and new, with a St. Brigid’s twist to a very supportive audience.
Christmas is always a busy time in the school with the Bazaar, Advent prayer services, Christmas lunch and of course a visit from Santa.
Earlier in the month new parents attended St. Brigid’s Open Morning and prospective parents who would like to visit the school are invited to contact the Principal and arrange a meeting.
