During the first two weeks of December, our students in Key Stage 2 from each of the six School Families, performed their version of “A Christmas Carol” in front of all their friends and families. This is a classic work in English Literary Fiction written by Charles Dickens. Each year, it helps our students to remember the importance of thinking about ones own actions and trying to change things when get them wrong.

We are nearing the end of the Year and it's time to review everything we have done. Sometimes, we would like to get a second chance and be able to change things and make good our mistakes. Just like the mean and bad tempered Mr Scrooge, the main character in “A Christmas Carol”. Our students in Primary have recreated this fantastic story, in which Scrooge is visited by three ghosts, on Christmas Eve. They are the ghosts of Christmas Past who show him his past, present and what the future holds in store for him and his loved ones. He realizes his own terrible nature and understands that he must change his way in life and his attitude towards other people.

Mr Scrooge faces up to his earthly miseries, big ones and small ones, and he has to relive through all his previous bad deeds. One night, in a magical dream, Scrooge learns a lot, very quickly. He understands for instance, that we cannot just look down to the floor, that we also have to look up to the stars, that we have to find a light to guide us. And above all, he realizes that nobody can live a life without love.

Our students not only staged a magnificent version of this exciting story but were also responsible for designing the billboard poster which was also on the cover of the programme, handed out on the day of the performance itself.

Congratulations to everyone for a most professional effort and for making such a good show of treading the boards!
