Sub-heading: Early years perform My First Nativity
Shiskine Primary School pulled out all the stops to produce a fantastic performance of their Christmas show Lights, Camel, Action.
The entire school took part in the rescheduled nativity show which featured some lively camels and a disco star despite illness besetting some of the performers. The original show had to be postponed owing to the General Election.
Younger pupils from the early years class also had an opportunity to enjoy some acting fun with a performance of their own which was called My First Nativity, which they performed for senior citizens at the Kinloch Hotel.
A school spokeswoman said: ‘The children worked hard at school and at home to learn their lines for the performance. They were supported by their families to learn all the songs and provided make up, costumes and props for the show.
‘We also raised £612 pounds at the concert for school funds. Thank you to all of the pupils who took part and for the support of everyone who helped to make these productions possible. We would also like to thank Utter Nonsense Films who provided the equipment to film the show.’
