Girls Sparkle in Unique Nativity Performance
Tuesday, 20 December 2011
Bolton School Junior Girls got into the spirit of Christmas with a nativity play with a difference! Many years after the 'first' Christmas, shepherds, angels, kings, stars - all came back together as witnesses to the great event in chat show style!
The performance of Margaret Carpenter's 'Witnesses' treated the packed audience of parents to song, music, narration, poetry and dance. Head of Junior Girls' School, Mrs Ruth Brierley, welcomed everyone to the Girls' Great Hall, before the production began with a rendition of 'In My Arms' sung by the choir, followed by 'Good News' sung by the whole school. Highlights included short readings, solo performances by several girls and an enchanting star dance.
The celebration ended with renditions of 'Silent Night' sung in French and 'Joy to the World' sung in Spanish.
