End of 2019: Our Christmas Shows Are Stunning

The tradition for most Nigerian schools is to end the year with celebrations, and we aren’t left out, as we celebrated Christmas shows across our four campuses — including Anthos House, our school for special needs education. The shows were attended by parents, members of staff of our school and well-wishers, and our students thrilled the attendees with stunning performances. 

Speaking at the Ikoyi campus Christmas show themed A Midwife Crisis, Mrs Onayimi Aiwerioghene, a parent at the event, said, “I have never seen a school’s Christmas show production this good! The costumes were perfect, and the storyline of the nativity of Jesus dramatized from a midwife’s perspective was compelling.”

“The midwife heard the news of a king that’s going to be born soon, so she wanted to be the person to take the delivery and be glorified. She believed that kings are supposed to be born in the palace; so she ran helter-skelter in Jerusalem, looking for the palace where Mary would give birth to King Jesus – only to discover that Jesus has been born in a stable. And rather than Jesus needing the midwife for his delivery, it was the midwife that needed Jesus, so as to be safe and free from sins.”

“The teachers put in a lot of effort in preparing the students for the show, and the students did very well. I enjoyed the show as it was filled with excitement from beginning to end. Kudos to the teachers!”

The Christmas show themes for the school’s Lekki and Anthony campuses are AIDA and Revelations respectively, and the parents at the shows also spoke on how much they were captivated by the presentations of our students.

Mr Uche Ogbu, our school’s Head of Corporate Strategy, also expressed his happiness about the students’ performances in the Christmas shows across all four campuses. He remarked that “Even though we are very serious with academics and 5 of our students emerged Top in Country in this year’s IGCSE exam, we take extracurricular activities very serious. The stunning performances of our students in these shows support the fact that we are a school that provides a well-rounded education.”
