Deravoy National School children staged a fantastic programme of entertainment for
parents, grandparents and friends in Carrickroe Community Centre last week and praise
must go to every young person on stage for the manner in which they did their parts.
Praise also to the teachers and others who helped to put the whole thing together
and supply the costumes and all that goes with putting on a show like this. The acting
was superb and the story lines were excellent - the Nativity, to take in the real
Christmas story - the birth of Jesus and then a burning issue - homelessness, was
portrayed and an idea of what it is like to be homeless on a cold winter's night,
which tied in with the difficulty Joseph and Mary had in getting accommodation on
the night Jesus was born. Then the musicians, and there are a huge numbers of those
in the school, displayed their talents to everyone's enjoyment. During the break
there was tea and coffee and tasty snacks for all and a chance to chat to ones neighbours.
It was a great occasion and one that will last in the memories of all the children
involved, and that seemed to be every pupil in the school. It also assisted in promoting
confidence and there was plenty of that on display too. Well done all.
The photo above shows four generations and that was only one of the other 4 generations
in the Hall watching brothers, sisters, cousins, nephews, nieces, daughters, sons,
grandchildren and great grandchildren. Mai pictured here with daughter, grandson
and great grandson, and there were other combinations there too.
