Castlehill Primary School’s annual nativity was so expertly carried out that the audience could be forgiven for disbelieving that the actors belonged to P1 and P2.

The children from the school’s two youngest classes told the story of Jesus Christ’s birth through songs, actions and narration.

As well as group singing, there were solos, including an astounding rendition of Twinkle, Twinkle, Christmas Star.

The youngsters must have been practicing for months to learn the words so well and parents, teachers, family and friends should be rightfully proud of them.
