Size doesn’t matter when it comes to celebrating the Christmas spirit.
Students of Eureka Public School delighted their parents and friends last week with an end of year concert that followed a tree planting and graduation.
Like schools across the region, the tiny school has closed its doors for the holiday season … but not before a visit from Santa, plenty of carol singing and the concert.
The concert was a multi-cultural affair.
It began with a film based at the North Pole, with the children enacting a play about the importance of caring for each other.
The audience was then taken on a journey from the Hen House at Farmer Browns in the junior school play “Fowl Play” to the high mountains, on a pilgrimage from China to India, in “Monkey Magic”- a beautiful multi media play exploring the themes of compassion, inner reflection and patience.
The children also produced a series of animations as part of an animation unit funded by the school’s P and C committee.
There was also a performance by the ‘increasingly famous’ Eurekaleles (the Eureka PS ukulele group)!
The evening was topped off by a visit from Santa, bearing ice blocks for all.
