The children are certainly getting into the Christmas spirit at school. Friday December 7th was a busy day at BISS. In the morning Oliver had his Christmas concert and then we were back again in the evening for the school Christmas Carol Concert.
The concert consisted of 5 nursery classes and 3 Reception classes, all dressed in a different Christmas theme and singing their little hearts out! I think they might have all been over-whelmed as they were on the stage in the Theatre with all the lights on them, and the Theatre was packed full of parents! (Owen was in the UK and unfortunately missed his performance – thank goodness for video cameras!)
The Concert lasted about 30 minutes with lots of different songs about the Holiday season. All the children were so good – singing loudly, sitting in the correct places and generally not much crying! There were a few who got upset when they saw Mum or Dad!
Oliver had also had a trip to the post office last week to send the Christmas card he had made:
We had Emma, Ava and Ethan over for dinner in the evening and then all of us climbed into our van to go back to school for the Carol Concert. It was a lovely performance with all years involved. We had a couple of dance performances – ballet, jazz and tap. The band played a few songs – there is a very talented saxophone player who improvised one song! And, of course, the different school choirs – from the very youngest (Rainbow Choir) up to Secondary/Senior school. At the end, it was a sing-along for everybody with favourites like Silent Night and We Wish You a Merry Christmas!
There was even an interval so we could enjoy mince pies and mulled wine!
