Woodley Park Nursery in the Festive Mood
DPI, Guyana, Wednesday, December 13, 2017
As Woodley Park Nursery School in Bath Village (Mahaica-Berbice) hosted its annual Christmas concert and pageant last Friday, parents and guardians turned out in their numbers to support the students, afforded an opportunity to display their talents.
As the show progressed the audience was entertained as students offered renditions of traditional Christmas carols. However, the main attraction was the Christmas Pageant which saw seven little ladies taking to the stage. Each contestant was required to give a brief introduction about herself, perform a talent piece and display a gown. The final four then answered a selected question and at the end of it all Anusha Brijlall was crowned winner with Sanita Jingree as the first runner-up
The school’s holiday festivities then continued the following Monday with a Christmas Road Parade. In a colourful display of various costumes, the students accompanied by their teachers and traffic wardens marched through the village then back into the school compound. According to Head Teacher, Ms. Carlotta Nicholson, the Woodley Park Nursery School held their first Christmas Road Parade in 2012, and since then it has become an annual feature.
Ms. Nicholson noted that while there is room for improvement, the school has been well supported by the parents, guardians and the community in general. According to the Head Teacher, this backing has contributed significantly to the school’s success over the years, and she anticipates with such continued support the school will grow from strength to strength.
