Headteacher Ann-Louise Murray and her dedicated staff and helpers once again ensured the show was a real crowd-pleaser throughout.

After everyone gave a rousing rendition of Hark the Herald Angels Sing, two classic hits from the film Home Alone - Rockin’ Around The Christmas Tree and Jingle Bell Rock - were performed by P6/7 followed by Do They Know It’s Christmas and Merry Christmas Everyone.

The school’s violin group comprising Louise Strachan, Ellie Haggath, Georgia Jack, Sophie McPhee, Cailtyn Aiken, Emily Carr and Hannah Buchan then gave us Jingle Bells, Good King Wenceslas and Silent Night.

P4/5 were next to take to the stage for renditions of Merry Christmas Everyone and Christmas Hit, followed by the poem - Twas The Night Before Christmas - where everyone got a chance to shine. Olivia Haggath and Caitlyn Buchan then gave a duet of I Couldn’t Sleep One Night before the class rounded off with It Was On A Starry Night.

The talented choir - which also performed at Morrisons Supermarket - sang I Wish It Could Be Christmas Every Day and When A Child Is Born to lead into the performance sby the P1/2 and P3/4 classes.

The wee stars then gave us It’s Christmas Time Again, Down In Bethlehem, Ding Dong and - by far and away the audience favourite - The Animals In The Stable - which caused much hilarity and was repeated to everyone’s delight.

Rounding off the night were Ashleigh Scott with a solo rendition of Sleep Little Baby, the whole school singing Away In A Manger with solo by Ewan McPhee, and another rousing audience number - Silent Night - to cap a memorable night’s entertainment.
