School Christmas Program

Having a busy week? We bet you are! With the Christmas rush in it’s final dash we could understand if you are only reading this after the ‘Big Day’ or perhaps even in the New Year!

Rather than recounting all the excitement of our week, we are going to take a break from the norm and just share a bunch of photos of our kids amazing Annual School Christmas Program. We are so proud of them for their hard work, it was an amazing night! Special mention to our Principal Mr David Chirag Din who oversaw the entire program.

It sure was a packed house with around 2000 people in attendance.
