It takes a whole school...

Buckinghamshire Advertiser - - NEWS -

GER­RARDS Cross PrePrep kids per­formed a whole depart­ment dress re­hearsal of a mul­ti­cul­tural mu­si­cal na­tiv­ity re­cently.

School chiefs said it is the first time in a long time a na­tiv­ity in­volv­ing all chil­dren from year two to nurs­ery has been per­formed, as usu­ally there have been sep­a­rate EYFC and KS1 pro­duc­tions.

The na­tiv­ity, called ‘It takes a vil­lage to raise a child’ was writ­ten by Sheila Wil­son.

The boys have really en­joyed the chal­lenge of learn­ing their lines, songs and cues, teach­ers said.

Year two teacher Karen Mercer said: “The way the na­tiv­ity is told this year through the mu­si­cal ‘It takes a vil­lage to raise a child’ re­flects the way in which we’ve put the pro­duc­tion to­gether; it’s taken the whole of Pre-Prep to make it the suc­cess it is.

“Ev­ery boy has worked ex­tremely hard from nurs­ery to year two, as has ev­ery mem­ber of the PrePrep staff, and our par­ents who with the help of Mrs Vos have cre­ated some won­der­ful cos­tumes for the younger boys.

“With­out the com­bined ef­forts of ev­ery­one at PrePrep, a per­for­mance like this just wouldn’t have been pos­si­ble.”
