On Monday 28th of November we began practising the bongo drums with Ms Meagher. We only had two days to accomplish our bongo drums. We practised all day Wednesday and Thursday. On Thursday 1st December at seven o`clock we all arrived happy and content but also anxious. Everyone in the audience burst out with excitement when we started to play the drums. It ended with applause from the audience. Then the junior room went on stage and performed “Prickly Hay” and they all did amazingly well. After that, the senior room proceeded to use the chimes and bells. The songs we played were “Somewhere Over The Rainbow” and “We wish you a Merry Christmas”. Then the senior room sang “ The Glory rap” and “Grandma got run over by a Reindeer” and for this song Lucy, Rebecca and I lifted up Robyn O’ Reilly and instantly everyone gasped with shock. Another song that was sang was “I want a Hippopotamus for Christmas “. When the show was over the audience applauded. They all really enjoyed it and so did we. It was really nice to have all the parents at our Christmas show as we had not been able to present one for three years.
