The true meaning of Christmas recently came to life for all of the students and staff at St. Anne Catholic School in Hanmer. The entire school community came together to celebrate the coming birth of Jesus. Students from FDK to Grade 8 participated in the celebration of Jesus’ birthday through prayer and dramatization.
Some grade 7 and 8 students acted as a voice in the Nativity story, while students from Mme Trepanier’s FDK class provided a dramatization. “I thought it was really creative and
a cute play to watch,” said Cole Hamilton, a grade 8 student at St. Anne Catholic School.
The FDK students were very pleased with their accomplishments, and were happy to display the biggest gift at Christmas: Jesus. “My favourite part was riding on the donkey (wagon). I was happy to be Mary,” said FDK student Makinley Bertrand.
“I felt special being Joseph. I liked pulling the wagon and knocking on the door of the Inn,” said Gillis O’Daiskey, FDK student.
