The children of Dalintober Primary School’s Early Learning Centre (ELC) took an audience of their family and friends on an alphabetical journey through the Christmas nativity story.

The play began: ‘A is for Angel, B is for Baby, C is for Celebrate with Joseph and Mary!’

The young actors took turns in the spotlight according to their roles – angels, stars, shepherds, wise men and, of course, Mary and Joseph – to continue the whole festive alphabet.

Their stellar performances belied their junior years, with every word audible during the 10 songs they learned for the production.

After the nativity, the ELC’s youngest pupils continued the Christmas spirit by taking to the stage wearing Christmas jumpers, hats and boppers to perform some festive tunes.

The school’s P1 to P3 and P4 to P7 pupils put on their own shows on Monday and Tuesday – see next week’s Courier for coverage of those events.
