Preparatory school celebrates Christmas in style
Clementina Hampton Preparatory School, Lekki, recently celebrated the love and birth of the Lord Jesus with Nativity 2019 at Terra Kulture, Victoria Island, Lagos, as parents, families and well-wishers were entertained with songs, recitations, drama, orchestral and presentations.
The children succeeded in capturing the essence of Christmas with carols, renditions and drama, to the delight of guests.
Faramode Akinbisehi, a Year 7 pupil, who took part in most of the performances, said she was able to deliver her role due to frequent rehearsals. When asked how she was able to face the audience, she said:
“Whenever I had stage fright, I just closed my eyes and took a deep breath. This did the magic and gave me the balance and boldness to carry on.”
Mrs. Kemi Balogun, a director and co-partner of the school, said this year had been a great one for the children, as they worked hard to come up with an excellent outing for the Christmas play.
She said: “We were able to attain this height because the school has a more spelt out drama department, better equipped, with orchestra and lots more. It is mandatory for every child to play two instruments.
“And from their performances, it was clear the children displayed what they learnt. Aside opening a new branch, the school is also expanding on what is already on ground, which are quality and high standard education and facilities.
“The teachers are very pleasant and they make the children comfortable. This, coupled with the beautiful, serene environment is suitable for learning.”
On her part, Mrs. Emma Elegbe, Head of the school, attributed the rapid growth and development of the school to combined efforts of all stakeholders.
