Our Nativity this year, for 2016, was ‘A Timeless Nativity’ and was written specially for our last Christmas in this school before we move to our new school in 2017. The story starts with a present day child ‘Johnny’ who is bored with all the singing practice because he just wants it to be Christmas and get all his presents. The teacher has words with him and says he needs to see the Doctor as he is not in the true spirit of Christmas. Cue the Doctor who arrives in his Tardis. He then takes Johnny back to 1876, the year Dalbeattie Primary School first opened so that he can learn something from the boys and girls back then. He then takes Johnny even further back in time to Bethlehem, over 2000 years ago. By the time the play ends, Johnny now appreciates the true meaning of Christmas and he apologises to his classmates for his lack of enthusiasm earlier on!
