During Advent, pupils across St John’s Academy prepare for Christmas. In our primary school the highlight is our annual P2 Nativity and Christmas Show. This year the nativity was ‘Shine, Star, Shine!’, the story of the star of Bethlehem who had lost its shine until it saw a very special baby in a manger. In both the afternoon and evening performances, the children narrated the story and sang beautifully. In addition, stage groups took to the stage and gave their audiences a medley of Christmas hits and hymns. The performances were packed out with family and friends and really enjoyed the talent on show! Read more
