This year Dunoon Primary Learning Centre and Nurture Group performed “The Nativity” to parents, friends and the other pupils and staff in the school. All of the children took part, trying very hard to learn their lines and the words and signs for lots of songs. A special mention must go to P6 pupil, Kenzie, whose narrating was outstanding during all performances. Parents particularly enjoyed solos performed by Aaron, Christopher, Alexander, Ciaran, Malakai, Ty, Evie and Bonnie. The final performance was so good that Santa flew in to deliver some special presents! Afterwards, parents and children enjoyed some tea and cake before the children went home to get ready for Santa arriving at their own houses.
