A TULLIBODY school shared some festive joy and celebrations as they held their Christmas Nativity show.

Banchory Primary School welcomed families into their school as their younger pupils got the chance to perform the classic play on Thursday, December 21.

Headteacher Gemma Kennedy was delighted with the performance, praising the pupils for their hard work during rehearsals.

“It went really well,” Gemma said. “We had almost a full turn out from all families and children.

“The children had been practicing for a number of weeks and it was a whole team effort to bring it all together.

“We had singing, the Primary 7s narrating the experiences and our ELC/P1 children role playing out the story of the Nativity.

“We had a dress rehearsal the day before which went so well and we were worried how the actual show was going to go but it was even better.”

The Nativity - telling the story of the birth of Jesus Christ - is a regular festive feature at many schools.

Banchory’s Nativity was performed in front of families of the pupils in the ELC and younger classes.

Gemma went onto add that the school nativity was the product of the whole school team helping out.

She added: “This was envisioned by our principal teacher Claire Hume, our senior ELC educator Jenny McEwan, supported by class teacher Miss Chelsea Polson and our ELC teachers within the nursery.

“A big thanks goes out to the families at home who were helping with the songs. Our Primary 7s designed the set of Bethlehem with recycled materials.

“Our seniors in the nursery were also learning how to sew to bring all the costumes together over the past couple weeks.”
