Video of our Junior Room Christmas Play, 2019

Posted by Ms. McDonald On December - 18 - 2019

Our Christmas play was called ‘I’m Gonna Shine’. This play was all about journeys made towards Bethlehem by various travellers in a search for true treasure, the newborn King! Gloria the brightest star of all, had a really important job to do – she needed to shine, shine, shine so that the three wise men could follow her to Bethlehem.

The angels and their heavenly choir helped the shepherds on their way. Meanwhile, a very special couple Mary & Joseph were also making the long journey to Bethlehem. This culminated in everyone gathering together in a humble stable where they all celebrated the arrival of baby Jesus.

I am very proud of all the Junior room pupils who worked hard over the last few weeks to learn off all their lines, songs and actions. The pupils and I thoroughly enjoyed making and performing this play for you. We hope you enjoyed watching it and we wish you and yours a very peaceful and happy Christmas.
