Story: N. Khan, parent of Byron Wood pupil
What a wonderful production the nativity at Byron Wood Primary was! I would choose to watch this nativity over a Hollywood film any day.
The cast were confident and natural born actors, some of the nursery children were funny without even realising it. I’ve never seen an angel throw off his halo before but I’m glad he did because it made the audience giggle with delight. Yes he was 3 years old and the halo throwing wasn’t in the script but that’s children for you.
All the children that stood up on that stage were focused and had memorised 11 songs… yes you read right… 11 songs. I don’t think I could ever go up on stage in front of my peers and adults and act. It shows what a fantastic job the staff did and the changes that have taken place at Byron Wood over the years. The show was that good that The Lord Mayor was in the audience and we all heard him say ‘it is the best nativity I’ve seen’.
If I could bottle what I saw on that stage I wouldn’t ever need to work again! Well done Byron Wood staff and children for a wonderful performance and the cakes and coffee afterwards. I’ll be there next year!
