Countdown To Christmas

While the rest of the world has just over a week until the ‘big day’ we have just two days left to ours. On Tuesday next week our school will host its Annual Christmas Program, an event more than two months in the making. Dances, dramas, speeches and songs have been prepared for the big day in which as many as two thousand are expected to be in attendance. Over the last two weeks our school children have been spending half of their day in practice sessions, constructing decorations or preparing in other ways for the event. Of course many of our teachers have also been getting involved in the work as well.
