On Wednesday the 12th of December, St. Mary’s annual Christmas concert took place. Throughout December, tickets were selling steadily in the lead up to what is always one of the biggest and most exciting school events of the year. Christmas cheer and excitement was at fever pitch as the Junior and Senior Infants took to the stage first. Following a medley of Christmas carols and old festive favourites, it was the turn of the first classes to thread the boards. Parents, guardians, friends and elations all converged on St Marys P.E hall which was transformed into a Theatre Royal for the day.
With the morning giving way to the afternoon, the second, third and fourth classes took to the stage and treated the packed audience to traditional nativity pieces and other festive stories with each classes own personal touch.
As the daylight started to fade, there was no diminishment of the audience where the more creative script and playwrights and directors were to the fore in the 5th and 6th class performances. Plenty of home-grown characters featured in scenes that captured the imagination and tickled the funny bones of the assembled spectators with the 6th class plays bringing an end to a marathon day of dramatic production.
As always the great cooperation, hardwork and endeavor of all the class teachers, their link support teachers and Ms. Wards stage and sound work must be commended in putting together another successful Christmas concert.
Happy Christmas to all the St Marys N.S school community for 2018.
