School Christmas Concert

A few days ago, our daughter's school put up a Christmas concert. All the year levels presented a Christmas themed performance in front of a large audience of parents and relatives. Our daughter's class partnered with another class to act out a story about 10 little angels. Each child was asked to wear a costume based on their part. When the girl came home one day telling us she was the narrator of the story, we weren't sure what costume she should wear. Good thing the teacher said that she could wear anything and she ended up wearing a dress and with tinsel in her hair.

We practiced her part over the next couple of weeks and when the night came she was more than prepared. She did very well in reading out the lines in front of the large crowd. As she read out the words, the class did their part to act out the story on stage. Seeing her on the stage with the spotlight on her, we couldn't help but feel so proud for. I was amazed at how composed and confident she and her co-narrator were to speak in front of a large audience.

It didnt' take long for the concert to finish and as we collected her from her classroom, her teacher told us how great she did and what a treasure we have in her. It was nice to hear that coming from her. I guess we must be doing something right. :)

P.S. Video to be uploaded soon!
