Tis the season to be jolly, and what better way to spread the festive cheer than through Christmas plays? As they do each year, our halls came alive with the magic of the holiday season as each class took the stage for their annual Christmas performances.
From rehearsing lines to practising their lively songs, the entire school transformed into a hub of creativity in the run up to the play performances. Each class staged a unique plays filled with memorable characters and catchy choruses. From the youngest Nursery children to our confident Form 5 children, every class put their heart into bringing the spirit of Christmas to life on stage.
For the smallest performers in The Gower School Nursery, it was many of their first time ever to take the stage before an audience. Parents and teachers couldn’t help but smile as the little actors dressed as Mary, Joseph, the Three Wise Men, and plenty of adorable angels and performed their play, ‘Whoops-a-Daisy Angel’. We were all mesmerised by their confidence at such a young age.
As the grades progress throughout our Primary school, so does the complexity and depth of the performances. Our Forms 1 and 2 children take on variations of the classic tale of the Nativity, while the older Forms tackle more elaborate productions with multiple scenes and characters such as ‘Bethlehem the Musical’ and ‘The Snow Queen’. The growth in confidence is evident, with each child embracing the opportunity to shine in their roles.
The success of our Christmas plays is due to our dedicated teaching teams who double as directors and choreaographers for their performances. The fantastic quality of the shows is due to their inspiring dedication! The annual Christmas plays at The Gower School have become more than just a tradition, they bring a sense of togetherness that is an integral part of our festive school celebrations.
