Reception – Born in a Barn
The story was told from the animal’s point of view and started with the animals finding Jesus in the barn. Parents provided the costumes for the children and a special drama teacher, Mrs Williams, who is a parent helper, helped organise the whole production. There were two performances, each lasting 35 minutes and Mrs Meckiff came along to one as well.
Years 1 and 2 – A Midwife Crisis
A non-traditional performance. A midwife received a telephone call saying a baby was been born, but after searching many places she unfortunately arrived late and baby Jesus had already been born! The children in Year 2 had the main parts with Year 1 classes singing the songs.
Year 3 – News from Bethlehem
Year 3’s show told the Christmas story through a news report. The reports told the effects unfurling in Bethlehem and had a news piece for when each group arrived. Channel 7 news provided the reporting.
Year 4 – The Magical Christmas Jigsaw
The nativity story told in a different way. 4 children fin various pieces of a jigsaw which each tell a part of the Christmas story. At the end of the performance all the pieces had been shown and a full nativity scene has gathered on the stage.
