Playmates put on a very special show at the Lourdes Church

The pupils at Playmates Montessori School preformed their Nativity Play last Wednesday the 13th of December in the Lourdes Church for parents, siblings, friends and family. This year's play was called "Whoops a Daisy Angel" which is the story of Christmas through the eyes of an angel.

Teacher Jackie Walshe spoke with pride as she explained "The children practiced really hard over the last few weeks and they sang their hearts out for their family and really enjoy the play. We use musical style plays with the children so the story is told through song with a few lines for the older children to say.

'Our cast this year were, "Whoops a Daisy Angel" played by Millie Healy. The Snowflake Angels were Chloe Fennell, Elise Healy, Amanda Zale, Elise Healy, Elsie Walshe and Naomi Alves. The Angels who brought baby Jesus and the manger to the crib were Wendy Ren and Jessica Wang. Singing Angels were Danielle Brady, Maia Tang and Caoimhe Walshe. Our Shepherd was Matas Varinauskas and the three Wise Men were played by Nam Ninh, Nikita Borenkov and Alex Fisticanu. Past pupil of the school Orlaith Walshe narrated the play on the night and did a fantastic job.'

Teachers Jackie, Naomi, Sarah and Aine were very proud of all the children on the night.
