Aims of the project
To bring together different groups and ages of children.
To celebrate the Nativity in an unusual setting.
Factors for measuring success include the happy cooperation between the schools and the children taking part, the pleasure evidently given to our audience and the increasingly strong links with our community.
Background and goals
At the instigation of a school grandparent. Both schools recoginised the value and the potential success. The event has now run for two years and will take place again in December 2017.
Spring Grove supplies the musicians, instruments and musical expertise. Brockhill provides the animals and the young actors. Volunteer parents assist.
Our children sing extensively at Christmas and will provide pleasure to many, whether singing on the streets, in a local old peoples' home or in Canterbury.
Our pupils range in age from 4 to 11; Brockhill pupils are of secondary age.
Frequency and duration
It is an annual one-off event.
