Children at the High School of Dundee have succeeded in a mission to piece together the true meaning of Christmas!

Pupils in L1, L2 and L3 took parents, staff and fellow pupils on a fun-filled festive adventure when they performed their Nativity show, ‘The Magical Christmas Box’, by Craig Hawes.

Beginning on Christmas Eve, the tale told the story of brother and sister, Andrew and Sarah’s quest to collect the pieces from a magical Christmas Box in order to learn about all of the things that make this time of year so special.

With the clock ticking towards December 25th, the young duo were in a race against time. But with the help of the Box’s Keepers and a number of festive characters including Christmas trees, chefs, snowmen, snowflakes, some elves, Santa Claus and Rudolf, the siblings were able to start gathering together the pieces of the puzzle. The last piece was to be found under a special manger in Bethlehem and as luck would have it, Andrew and Sarah were able to collect it and complete their mission before the break of Christmas Day!

Deputy Head Junior Years, Claire Proudfoot said of the production, in which every child in the year groups played a part, “This was a magical show, most definitely one of my favourites! Many congratulations to all of our pupils in L1, L2 and L3 on their wonderful performances!”

Last year's performances raised over £2000 for Maggie’s and the Mashimoni School in Nairobi. This year we are supporting the Scottish Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Children (SSPCC) the Edinburgh Children’s Hospital and the Suswa Girls Rescue Centre in Kenya.
