Once Upon A Christmas

Children in the Junior Years have been on a mission to find a special story with a special meaning.

And of course, at this time of year, only one story would do the trick!

Pupils in L1, L2 and L3 have been performing their Nativity show, ‘Once Upon A Christmas’, written by Junior Years teacher Audrey Davie, to audiences of pupils and proud parents and extended family in Trinity Hall.

The show followed Little Red Riding Hood and Tinkerbell as they encountered a series of much-loved fairy tale characters in their pursuit of a special story.  

Packed full of catchy songs, the tale took all those in attendance on a magical journey that led all the way to Bethlehem and the very first Christmas of all!

Deputy Head Junior Years, Claire Proudfoot said of the production, in which every child in the year groups played a part, "What a wonderful time we’ve had these last few weeks; the Nativity is a fantastic opportunity for our pupils!

"I’d like to thank them for their commitment and their enthusiasm - well done!"

Last year’s performances raised over £1500 for the NSPCC, the Edinburgh Children’s Hospital and the Suswa Girls Rescue Centre in Kenya. This year we are supporting Homestart and Alzheimers Scotland.

Photos from the Nativity are available to view here.  

Professional photographs taken of the two casts will also feature in a special nativity supplement in this Monday's (23 December) Evening Telegraph.
