Record numbers see school’s na­tiv­ity play

The Peterborough Evening Telegraph - - Neighbourhood News -

MORE than 400 proud par­ents and rel­a­tives en­joyed a na­tiv­ity play at Her­ling­ton Pre-school .

The Or­ton Mal­borne preschool held two per­for­mances for the first time, such was de­mand for tick­ets.

In the end more than 200 peo­ple at­tended each show which saw ev­ery one of the school’s 198 pupils play a part.

As well as per­form­ing the show, young­sters also sang a va­ri­ety of tra­di­tional Christ­mas songs in­clud­ing Away In A Manger, Lit­tle Don­key and We Three Kings.

The chil­dren were ap­plauded off the stage on each oc­ca­sion and staff re­ceived many pos­i­tive com­ments from the au­di­ence.

School man­ager Bar­bara Howlett said: “It was a tra­di­tional na­tiv­ity per­for­mance and this was greatly ap­pre­ci­ated by the au­di­ence.

“We re­ceived lots of pos­i­tive com­ments from peo­ple who came along and I know that the chil­dren re­ally en­joyed them­selves.

“We had a new class­room built last year which boosted our numbers and meant we had more peo­ple turn up than ever be­fore. We may need to do three shows next year.”
