Carols service and Nativity for grandparents at Erin’s school

Hubby and I went to Erin’s school in Benoni for the grandparents Carols service and Nativity yesterday morning.  We arrived at the school while all the children were on their morning break.  Hundreds of children !!!  Erin and her little friends were waiting near the car park for us to arrive.  She introduced us to all her friends, all beaming from ear to ear and one told us proudly  …  ‘did you know, there are more than a thousand kids at our school !! ‘   Prefects handed out small gifts to all grandparents.  Grandmas were given a lovely handmade necklace .. very special 🙂

The Nativity story was told in a slightly different way with focus being on the Inn Keeper and his wife .. the stable unseen .. beyond the stage.   Funny quips throughout made it light-hearted and enjoyable for all ages.  Actors oozed confidence

Slave in charge of animals was very good.  Here he is trying, in vain, to pull a camel to the stable …
