A local primary school recently put an educational twist on the story of Christmas for its annual concert, taking the community for a trip around the world.

St Mary’s College’s little singers, dancers and actors kept their audience entertained and on their feet for a fun evening of festive spirit on December 1, as the three wise men went on an international journey to find out what Christmas was all about.

From wishing everyone “feliz navidad” in Spanish to exploring what everyone’s favourite holiday means to different Asian cultures, students from pre-primary to Year 6 were able to showcase their learning in a comedic and enjoyable way.

Of course, it wouldn’t be a Christmas concert without a few carols, but the performance went beyond Santa and a one-horse open sleigh, incorporating the school’s Catholic teaching of the miracle of Jesus’ birth into the show.

The college’s head of primary Coby Rhatigan said the “well-attended event” celebrated the true meaning of Christmas.

“It was a wonderful evening, with students showcasing their creativity and artistic skills with the school community,” she said.
