You know it's Christmas when Pre-prep are in town!

The final Thursday of the Autumn Term saw the arrival of the much  anticipated Pre-prep Christmas Show: Honky Tonky Donkey! For many children it was their first Christmas Show with a live audience at Duke of Kent School, for others it was their first Christmas show ever! 

Pupils delighted their parents and siblings with joyous singing and enchanting dance moves, as we followed the story of the Honky Tonky Donkey on his journey, alongside Mary and Joseph, to Bethlehem. 

As may or may not have been expected, at various points along the route they encountered a duo of fierce soldiers, shepherds warming themselves by a fire, a reluctant but pliable innkeeper and his wife, some endearing farmyard animals, a host of majestic angels and three very wise men! Our Year 2 narrators did a superb job of guiding us through the events and meetings, telling a previously unheard perspective of the renowned Nativity story. It was a joy to witness!
