Tamworth preschoolers embrace the joy of Christmas

IT’S a story that is ages old and never changes but still manages to wow audiences thousands of years on. Calrossy Preschool’s nativity play yesterday was no exception.

Parents, grandparents and friends of the 35 children involved packed the preschool’s classrooms to watch the five-year-olds in action after the three-year-olds took to the stage earlier in the week.

Preschool teacher Michelle Worthington said it was a nice way for children to understand the story behind Christmas.

The Christmas nativity concert has been a fixture at the preschool for about 30 years. 

“It’s something that the children and their parents look forward to and a nice way, particularly for the five-year-old class, to finalise their preschool lessons,” Mrs Worthington said. 

“The children enjoy trying out for different parts, being able to dress in costume and act out such an important story for their families.”
