Nagam­bie Pri­mary chil­dren send Christ­mas wishes

Euroa Gazette - - 2016 CHRISTMAS GREETINGS - By DIANE GRANT

THE end of year cel­e­bra­tions for the Nagam­bie Pri­mary School cul­mi­nated with their 2016 suc­cess­ful sum­mer Christ­mas con­cert at the Me­chan­ics Hall.

The theme for the con­cert was “Splash of Colour” and the school grade dance items fea­tured the pupils wear­ing a cer­tain colour for each item per­formed on stage.

A colour­ful ban­ner adorned the stage back­ground de­pict­ing the theme and a Christ­mas tree and dec­o­ra­tions glit­tered around the hall.

A huge crowd of par­ents, fam­i­lies and past stu­dents gath­ered to sup­port the pupils and staff at their end of year con­cert which saw nearly ev­ery school child tak­ing part in one of the items pre­sented to fam­i­lies and the school com­mu­nity.

An­other school year is over and “It was a very busy year for Nagam­bie Pri­mary School” school cap­tains and vice cap­tains James Auld, Michael Bourke, Olivia Jen­nings and Alexia Zin­tilis, said.

They read out some of the ac­tiv­i­ties the school had been in­volved with over the four terms.

The school cap­tains shared the com­pere’s role and did a great job.

They in­tro­duced the items for each grade start­ing with the preps per­form­ing the tra­di­tional Christ­mas na­tiv­ity play.

The evening’s suc­cess was due to the school staff or­gan­is­ing the items, teach­ing the lively danc­ing and sing­ing, help­ing with sound and mu­sic, prompt­ing, and the fam­i­lies the cos­tumes and props.

The whole school as­sem­bled at the fi­nale to sing two car­ols for the au­di­ence, and fin­ished with so much gusto and ac­tions in the “We wish you a Merry Christ­mas” carol, it was great to see them hav­ing fun sing­ing it.

Some $ 930 was raised from the raf­fle to go to­wards Alexi the school’s World Vi­sion spon­sor child and also the Steven Tito Academy in Tan­za­nia.

Lau­ren Ge­orge, for­mer mem­ber of Nagam­bie Pri­mary School, is a teacher at the Steven Tito Academy.

The chil­dren and staff are to be con­grat­u­lated on their ex­cel­lent ob­ser­vance of the fes­tive sea­son and the pass­ing on of some vi­brant Christ­mas spirit at their end of year Con­cert.

School prin­ci­pal Rob French con­grat­u­lated the stu­dents and staff on a fab­u­lous con­cert and thanked all con­cerned for a great school year once again and wished ev­ery­one a Merry Christ­mas.

BEST WISHES: The whole school gave a ter­rific fi­nale of “We wish you a Merry Christ­mas” at Nagam­bie Pri­mary School’s Christ­mas con­cert.
