Published Wednesday 19th of December 2012 11:04:52 AM

Christmas came to Gayhurst in early December as not one but two nativities were performed. The first was presented to their families by children in the Nursery, following which it was the turn of the children in children in Reception and Year One.

Both nativities were traditional in nature with the Nursery Class creating a lovely tableau complete with Shepherds, Kings, Angels, Mary, Joseph and, of course, the baby Jesus. Their performance included a number of traditional festive songs including �Little Donkey� and �Away in a Manger�.

The Reception and Year One nativity also told the traditional Christmas story but included a selection of more modern songs including �Knock, Knock, Knock� and �An Angel appeared in the Sky�.

All the children did really well and everyone agreed that they provided a fitting start to the school�s festive celebrations.

In addition, as well as enjoying all the fun activities linked to Christmas, children at Gayhurst have also been considering its true meaning through a number of festive services.

The first was the Junior School Christingle, where the children explored the theme of Christ�s light and love, as depicted through the symbolism of Christingle made up of an orange, ribbon, a lighted candle and four cocktail sticks bearing dried fruit or sweets.

Both the Junior and Senior Schools also held their respective Christmas Carol Services at St James Church in Gerrards Cross. Each service included a selection of carols, readings and songs, successfully combining to create a wonderfully festive atmosphere.
